Great News From Revista Iguana


The prestigious Multicultural Children’s Publication Award was recently presented to Iguana magazine for its "outstanding contribution to the field of multicultural education" by the National Association of Multicultural Education (NAME) at its 2009 President’s Banquet and Celebration.

NAME acknowledged the contribution Iguana makes to the Latino community by promoting the "reading, learning and enjoying" of Spanish language, multicultural stories. The association recognized founder, publisher and editor Christianne Meneses Jacobs for her work, through the magazine, to “instill in young children a pride for their native language.”

“This is a great honor for Iguana,” said Meneses Jacobs enthusiastically. “NAME is a well recognized educational association and their endorsement validates the work we do on behalf of Spanish speaking children in the United States.”

Iguana is the magazine for Spanish speaking children. It contains original short stories, poems, articles about science, technology, history, geography, biographies, comic strips, recipes, craft projects, word searches and many more. “The mission of Iguana magazine is to serve as a tool for Spanish language retention and Latino cultural preservation,” said Meneses Jacobs. “Iguana is unique in that it aims to instill in Latino children pride for their language and cultural heritage.”
Now in its fourth year, Iguana has also been honored as the recipient of the 2007 Anna Maria Arias Memorial Business Fund Award and the 2008 Latino Future Small Business Award.
