I had a hard time finding resources that highlighted the accomplishments of people of Hispanic origin for Hispanic Heritage Month this year, so I ended up doing a great deal of research in order to create my own bulletin board. I felt I had to share it with those who were in the same position! This is an edited version of what I posted on the bulletin board (pictures removed due to copyright restrictions).
Included are short biographies on and quotes from a variety of famous Hispanic Americans (also sometimes identified as Latino Americans). The highlighted individuals were carefully chosen and researched to be as diverse as possible in career, nationality, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, skin shade, political beliefs, potential familiarity to today's students, and more. We want to display as many potential role models as possible, to show them our students they can be whoever they want to be!

You can use these as a starting point for your own bulletin board, as slides or handouts to teach students about well-known Hispanic Americans, as background for a social studies project, during career education to show the diversity of fields that Hispanic Americans are involved in, or whatever else you think of.
I have also included labeled flags of each country widely considered to be Hispanic (Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela). There is also a list of more famous Hispanic Americans for reference, in case you would like to add more to the collection.
While this is a PDF version of the resource, I am more than happy to provide the editable PowerPoint document. Simply purchase here and contact me; I would just like to keep track of who is asking, to ensure that my work is not edited and resold.
Half of proceeds from selling this resource will be donated to Sociedad Latina (https://www.sociedadlatina.org/).
