ALAS Latinx Leadership Matters Campaign

About the campaign:

Our goal is to increase the number of Latinx school district superintendents and administrators in the United States. Out of the 14,000 school district leaders in the country, less than 2% are Latinx leaders and even far less Latinx women.
We will highlight various selections on our website to share how students feel about needing or having Latinx in Education Leadership roles. This is an opportunity for students to highlight the importance of having Latinx role models. 

Selection Process:

Submissions will be evaluated in three groups: 
Elementary school students, Middle School, and High School students.

1. Essay: Word count 500 - 1500
