Florida Hispanic Heritage Month 2012
September 15 - October 15: "Celebrating Florida's Heritage"
The diversity of Florida's people and cultures truly makes our state one of the most vibrant in our country. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we take time to recognize how Florida's growing Hispanic population enriches our state and strengthens Florida's cultural and economic ties to Spain, Latin America and beyond.
As communities across Florida celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, it is my privilege to honor the state Celebrating Florida's Heritage. Florida's history is written, in part, by strong Hispanic leaders who have helped make our state the best place to live in the nation. The 2012 Hispanic Heritage Month Contests will help students appreciate the endless contributions of Hispanic culture in our everyday life.
As Governor, I am working to make Florida a place where the American dream of economic prosperity is possible for everyone. I am focused on making Florida the best place for businesses to grow and expand by eliminating unnecessary regulation, holding government accountable and ensuring every child has the opportunity to get the best education possible. Working together, with all of Florida's business leaders, I know we can grow opportunities for all Floridians to prosper.
