The month of May is known as Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. The City of Ocoee’s Human Relations Diversity Board is hosting its first “Hello Asian American and Pacific Islander Project”. Elementary students will creatively draw the word for “hello” in the primary language of a country/state/territory and the national/state/territorial flower of one of the Asian or Pacific Islands specifically listed by the United States Census Bureau as Asian or Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. Five Ocoee elementary schools are participating in the art contest: Citrus Elementary, Innovation Montessori Ocoee, Ocoee Elementary, Prairie Lake Elementary and Renaissance Charter at Crown Point. The winners of the competition will be announced in May. They will receive a monetary award in the form of $50 and $100 gift cards.
