Corrido Contest Ceremony

April 20, 2016

For the past fifteen years, the University of Arizona Poetry Center has held a bilingual Corrido Contest for Arizona high school students. This contest celebrates student creativity, and the history of the border region. The Corrido Contest is now in the hands of the University of Arizona Mexican American Studies Department (MAS) along with the University of Arizona Department of Spanish and Portuguese, University of Arizona Confluence Center, and DEL Records. The literary standards set by the Poetry Center will be maintained, while bringing the rich history of corrido to the forefront.
