WVSU 4-H Creates Virtual Hispanic Heritage Month Program Sept. 15 - Oct. 15
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) 4-H has created a Hispanic Heritage Month program that will run from Sept. 15–Oct. 15 for classrooms and families to learn about Spanish-speaking countries and Hispanic traditions.

Teachers can register their classroom as a whole to learn about a different part of Spanish culture each day, such as traditional costumes, objects and food. A geography challenge is also available to teach participants about Spanish-speaking countries through various facts, maps, flags and coloring sheets.
In addition, classes can participate in a trivia event via Zoom to win a set of Spanish language games for their classroom.
The Hispanic Heritage Month program is free of charge and is also available to families to participate from home.
