The Passport to Latino-American Challenge project connects local immigrants to the community through creating a rich cultural symbol that was used during the Latino Festival in Highland Park. During spring 2015, ChattState International Outreach Office hosted the First Latino-American Festival in the city. The Passport to Latino-American Challenge was a fun cultural learning experience that challenged the participants to connect with 24 educational booths and activities to get their “passports” stamped. Prizes were awarded based on the number of passport stamps each participant received during the festival.
