Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!
Each year from September 15- October 15, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. Let's recognize the many achievements and contributions of Hispanic American champions who have inspired others to achieve success.
The celebration starts on September 15 because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively
