Bensenville, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District invites high school students within district boundaries to showcase their creativity and celebrate Hispanic heritage by participating in the Bensenville Hispanic Heritage Month Poster Contest. The contest encourages participants to design posters that capture the essence of Hispanic culture in a way that holds personal significance. Posters are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, September 29, and can be submitted in either physical or digital format.
“The Bensenville Park District is excited to provide a platform for high school students to express their artistic talents and share their appreciation for Hispanic culture during Hispanic Heritage Month,” says Cultural and Fine Arts Supervisor Angelina Davila. “By showcasing the diversity and richness of Hispanic heritage through art, the poster contest contributes to fostering cultural understanding and unity within the community.”
High school students passionate about embracing and commemorating Hispanic heritage are invited to participate in this exciting poster contest. Posters should be visually expressive and reflective of the unique cultural aspects that resonate with each participant. Importantly, the posters should convey their message without the use of words, allowing the imagery to speak volumes.

Physical posters can be submitted at the front desk of the Deer Grove Leisure Center, located at 1000 W. Wood Street, Bensenville. Alternatively, digital entries can be emailed to ADavila@BvilleParks.org.
First, second and third-place winners will be recognized for their exceptional poster designs, capturing the vibrant spirit of Hispanic heritage with prizes worth approximately $300. Prizes include gift cards for art supplies valued at $100, $75 and $50 for the top three finishers. The winning artwork will be utilized in promoting the 2024 Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
The winners of the Bensenville Hispanic Heritage Month Poster Contest will be announced during the Bensenville Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, scheduled 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 7.
