Pay It Forward Contest
At Google, we value diversity and inclusion and we support individuals who do the same. The Google Staffing Programs team in partnership with the Hispanic Googler Network is celebrating diversity and honoring Hispanic Heritage Month by recognizing leaders in education -- students, educators, and education-focused organization leaders -- who are advancing opportunities for their local communities.
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, students (high school or college, 14 and older), educators (teachers, administrators, school staff), and education-focused organization leaders (non-profit, private) are invited to showcase how they have positively impacted and influenced Hispanic communities within the US. We’re seeking leaders whose work in education demonstrates a commitment to expanding access and opportunities for the U.S. Hispanic community.
Before entering, please read the guidelines below and the FAQ. We look forward to seeing your submission!
