Essay contest: Why are you proud of your Hispanic heritage?
We all love knowing where we came from.
Some of us never get to know, and some of us know so much that we are completely engrossed with our family history.
Sunday through Oct. 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month, and we want to hear your histories - your stories.
Tell us why you're proud of your Hispanic heritage. Please send your story in 200 words or fewer and photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and put Hispanic Heritage Month in the subject line or mail them to Victoria Advocate, Attention Hispanic Heritage Month, P.O. Box 1518, Victoria, Texas 77901 or hand deliver them to the newsroom at 311 E. Constitution St. Please include a daytime phone number so we can call to get more information if necessary. Submission deadline is 5 p.m. Sept. 29.
