Cesar Chavez & Dolores Huerta Commemoration Contest 20162016 Chavez Huerta Commemoration-English(1)  | Informacion en Espanol

“It is not enough to teach our young people to be successful…so they can realize their ambitions, so they can earn good livings, so they can accumulate the material things that this society bestows. Those are worthwhile goals. But it is not enough to progress as individuals while our friends and neighbors are left behind.”-Cesar Chavez

To celebrate the legacy and work of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, BUSD and the Cesar Chavez Dolores Huerta Commemorative Committee (CCDHCC) is encouraging all 2nd -12th grade students to participate in our annual essay/poetry or spoken word/art contest!
