Altice USA is proud to announce that it has launched a student essay contest in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month. The contest is open to middle-school students (grades 6 through 8) and high-school students (grades 9 through 12) who attend school in the communities that Altice USA serves with its Optimum and Suddenlink television, internet and phone services. The 2016 contest asks students to: “Name a Latino, past or present, with whom you would choose to spend a day and explain why.” In all areas, essays must be submitted through the Altice Connects website http://alticeconnects.com/, emailed to HispanicHeritage@Alticeusa.com, or mailed to Altice USA, Attention Public Affairs, 1111 Stewart Avenue, Bethpage, NY 11714. Entries will be accepted through November 7 and cannot exceed 500 words. One grand prize and three runner up prizes will be awarded in both the middle- and high-school categories for both Optimum and Suddenlink service areas. Winners will be selected and announced in November 2016. Prizes include a $1500 cash scholarship (Grand Prize) or an iPad mini (Runner Up).
