Ou kab tradui sit entènèt sa a an plizyè lang diferan si w itilize Google™ Translate kòm sèvis yon lòt antite (the “Service”) ki founi sèvis wobo pou fè tradiksyon otomatik paj sit yo sou entènèt la. Nou mete sèvis Google™ Translate sa a aladispozisyon itilizatè oswa ou menm ("User" oswa “You”) kòm yon sèvis piblik gratis.

TANPRI, BYEN LI AVÈTISMAN AN AVAN OU ITILIZE SÈVIS LA.

Malgre sèvis tradiksyon Google la itilize teknoloji avanse dènye kri, li pa itilize entèvansyon moun pou fè tradiksyon yo. Kidonk, tradiksyon ki fèt nan kad sèvis sa a ki founi la a sèlman bay yon ide apwoksimatif sou kontni reyèl sa ki di nan vèsyon orijinal sit entènèt la.

Se PA tout pati nan tèks yo ki kab tradui kòrèkteman epi ou kab menm jwenn kèk pati nan sit entènèt yo ki pa kab tradui ditou.

$200,000 in Scholarships to be awarded to Hispanic College-Bound Students

Back-to-school is always an exciting time for students across the country. As part of this significant moment, The Coca-Cola Company and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) are coming together with key retailers to announce the launch of Share Possibilities. This annual Hispanic Heritage Month scholarship program will award $200,000 in scholarships to help close the college attainment gap among Latino students.

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to support the community and provide Hispanic families the means to achieve their educational dreams and aspirations,” said Lauventria Robinson, Vice President of Multicultural Marketing, Coca-Cola North America Group. “This program allows us to bring the community together and share moments of happiness with families across the country.”

With a long-standing relationship of more than 30 years, The Coca-Cola Company’s Share Possibilities program is designed to further support HSF in its goal of providing scholarships to our country’s best and brightest Latino students and supporting them on their path to obtaining a college degree.

“With 69% of Latino high school graduates now going directly to college, it is more important than ever for HSF to provide scholarship support to students and information about college and financial aid to parents,” said Fidel A. Vargas, President and CEO of HSF. “Our long-standing partnership with Coca-Cola continues to flourish and has played a key role in our ability to positively impact students and their families throughout America.”

The Share Possibilities program grants a total of $200,000 in scholarships to college-bound Hispanic students. Nationally, the grand prize winner will receive $20,000; four students will be awarded $10,000 and sixteen will receive $2,500. The remaining $100,000 will be awarded by the company’s retail partners, within their respective communities, across the nation.

From Sept. 1 through Dec. 15, eligible high school seniors may apply for the opportunity to win a scholarship at www.Coke-HSF.com. Applicants who meet the minimum eligibility requirements will be featured in an online gallery with social media sharing capabilities. Students are encouraged to share their profiles and gain community votes. Each eligible participating voter is automatically entered for a chance to win a $500 gift card and can vote up to five times a day.

HSF will select the scholarship recipients based on the Fund’s standard selection criteria for awarding scholarships, factoring in community votes gathered online. Final winners will be announced by May 2014.

The company’s retail partners also play a vital role in the program by funding and awarding the remaining $100,000 in their local communities. Joining in the celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, these partners are helping to increase awareness about the importance of education as a means of strengthening communities and providing the brain power needed for a sustainable national economy.

Participating retailers include:

  • Atlanta Retailers Association (ARA)
  • Family Dollar
  • Giant Landover in Baltimore & Washington D.C.
  • Greater Houston Restaurant Association (GHRA)
  • Meijer, Inc. in Chicago, Illinois
  • La Michoacana Meat Markets in Texas
  • Stop & Shop New England Stop & Shop New York Metro

To learn more about the program, people can visit participating retailers in their area or go to www.Coke-HSF.com and www.hsf.net. Another way to follow the conversation is on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #CokeforEducation.
