Union Bank recognizes the many diverse cultures and backgrounds that make up the fabric of our communities. From September 15th to October 15th, 2017, they are proudly celebrating Latino Heritage. In conjunction with National Hispanic Heritage Month, Union Bank is partnering with Los Angeles’ own Magnolia Community Initiative and the Children’s Bureau® to sponsor a Young Artists Contest.

Contest Participation

Children ages 7 – 17 can create a 8 ½” x 11” drawing or painting that they feel best illustrates Latino Heritage. Entries can be submitted from September 15th to October 15th (see entry details on reverse side). The contest will be judged by a panel of artists, educators and representatives from Union Bank. Winning entries will be selected based on creativity and incorporating Latino Heritage themes into the artwork.
