Chicago's 2nd Annual Mexican Education Summit held March 6, 2004 at Westside Technical
Institute was attended by hundreds of Mexican American students, their families, Chicago educators and Chicago politicians
and civic leaders. The annual event was a community celebration of Mexican Culture and Educational Achievement
of Mexican Students in Chicago schools.
Each year following this event, MEDA, awards four exceptional Mexican American Chicago
High School students each with a computer as a way to encourage those students to continue their pursuit of higher education
degrees. The first two rows of pictures were from the 2004 MEDA Award Ceremony held at MEDA's Food
Bank, Social Services and Community Technology Center. These award ceremonies are webcast live out to an international
audience of bi-lingual education professionals and fellow colleagues in Latin America, Europe, North America and other countries as shown
on the second row of photos below. The third row of photos are from our No Child Left Behind
Outreach activities at the 7th Annual Chicago Public Schools High School Fair at McCormick Center.
The last row of photos are from one of our training classes graduation ceremonies where
those students who have completed their 10 week training courses are awarded their own refurbished computers to take home.
