Since 2001 I have joined others who remembered the life and the work of Cesar Chavez. Initially the remembrance took place at Pasadena City Hall; lead organizers were Latino Heritage, Pasadena Latino Forum, and the Pasadea Latino Employees Association. As happens with other events, it changed, it evolved and at one point included active participation by the City, by El Centro de Accion Social, and other groups.
For the past decade or so there has been the Art and Essay Contest. It is now is organized by PUSD. The contest has evolved and now includes the co-founder of the United Farm Workers - Dolores Huerta.
I doubt if the image above would win on artistic merit alone. And there is no reference to Aguila Azteca, or grapes, or workers in the field, or getting an education. The sorts of things that would help raise the score with the rubric that was used.
For me this image is a winner. There is something about their smiles and the way they look at each other that seems to express a good bit of pride. I see two people who are sharing a moment of success. "We did it". "It can be done".
That is a good lesson for any child to learn.
