Update (Apr 3, 2014): The form is now CLOSED! Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations. We will contact eligible participants shortly with more details.
Are you a freshman? Do you identify as Latin@? Did you receive a 3.0 GPA or higher last semester? If so, you are eligible for the Cipactli Latino Honor Society’s Freshman Recognition Award!
Each spring, the Cipactli Latino Honor Society acknowledges freshmen within Penn’s Latin@ community who have received at least a 3.0 GPA during their fall semester. If you qualify and would like to be honored at our Freshman Recognition Night, please fill out this form. The Director of La Casa Latina, Johnny Irizarry, will verify your GPA and notify the Chair of Cipactli. Please note that the members of the Cipactli Latino Honor Society will not see your GPA and will simply be told that you qualify.
We will also honor the accomplishments of 3 exceptional freshmen that embody our pillars of academic achievement, leadership, and community service. You may nominate yourself or other freshmen for one of these special awards using the same form.
This nomination form will close on Monday, March 31, 2014 at 11:59:59 PM. Invitations to the Freshman Recognition Night ceremony will be distributed electronically on Wednesday, April 2, 2014.
If you have any questions, please email CipactliLHS@gmail.com.
