Tejano Heritage Month was created to celebrate the Heritage and Legacy of Tejanos in Texas. The month is full of activities and events to help champion Tejano Heritage.
Each year, we conduct a statewide search for the best example of Tejano art to be used in the production of the official poster for each year’s Tejano Heritage Month celebrations! The contest offers another way to bring awareness of our Tejano heritage and Legacy. A $500 cash award is given to the winning entry.
During Tejano Heritage Month,student contests are conducted to help bring about awareness and education about the true lives and legacies of early Texas Tejano pioneers. Cash prizes and awards are given to winners.
