2020 Chavez Scholars
Grand Prize Winners
Due to Covid-19 the 2020 Cesar Chavéz Commemorative Breakfast was unfortunately canceled. The Sponsors of the Breakfast wanted to continued to support our event and the scholarship contest. In an effort to maintain social distancing measures, our students submitted their essays and the judges read them remotely. On July 25th, the winners were announced and were able to collect their rewards.
Thank you to San Diego Firefighters Local 145 for allowing us to host our Scholarship Drive at their location. This event would not be possible without the generosity of our Sponsors and Partners.
