Encourage your friends and classmates to Stay in School and graduate from high school!

The NC Society of Hispanic Professionals invites you and your friends/classmates to participate in our Stay in School Video/Announcement Contest to encourage Hispanic students in North Carolina to Stay in School and graduate from high school.
