As the grand prize winner, Mundo Lanugo will receive $5,000 to help build and grow its business.

Mundo Lanugo  is a socially responsible entertainment world that connects kids to Hispanic culture and promotes the use of Spanish language while building identity and self-esteem. Via fun animated videos, a culturally relevant app, and authentic live shows, each Lanugo character presents a facet of Latino culture, including music, crafts, traditional games, cooking and storytelling. Mundo Lanugo teaches culture to children and awakens their curiosity to learn more about themselves.
