held every three (3) years, focuses on education,
empowerment, health, and workforce & economic development.
The event serves
as a vehicle for the collaboration of our Greater Cleveland
Hispanic community organizations, partners and leaders, while
promoting the mission of the Hispanic Roundtable, as well as
empowering the Latino community.
At the last Convención in 2016, more than 3,000 members
of the community attended. “The excitement is building for
Convención 2019. We invite anyone and everyone interested in
the Hispanic community, and we anticipate that it will be bigger
and bolder than ever before. Our doors are open; we want to
transform our community,” says
José C. Feliciano,
Chair of the Hispanic Roundtable.
As part of the education initiatives, there is an essay contest
for high school seniors and college students. Scholarships of up
to $2,500 will be awarded to students with the winning essays.
The winners of the contest will be acknowledged at Convención
Hispana. There will also be a business pitch competition and
a school art contest.
