The deadline has been EXTENDED for MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th 2006!!!


The annual theme is developed with the understanding that beyond celebrating our heritage, it must help to motivate, mobilize and empower our community around critical concerns. This year’s theme:

Comité Noviembre…mes de la herencia puertorriqueña
XX Aniversario - Celebrando con orgullo nuestra cultura…
Hoy, Mañana y Siempre!

seeks to acknowledge and pay tribute to achievements of the Puerto Rican community in this nation. The theme celebrates the outstanding accomplishments of Puerto Ricans in all aspects of life and society from science, medicine and technology to music, dance and theatre. The theme addresses the importance of our achievements as a community and the impact it has had and will continue to have on society. The theme seeks to challenge each and every one of us to learn about our pioneers in these fields, feel proud of who we are and where we come from and commit ourselves to promote and teach others about our great contributions to this country.
