¡Sembrando Semillas tears it up at NMCE!

Sembrando Semillas members Toribio Garcia (Peñasco), Angel Martinez (Taos), Diane Carillo (Mora), and Samantha Mascareñas (North Taos County) (pictured, left to right), participate in the 5th annual New Mexico Civic Engagement Summer Institute ’07. This is the 3rd year of Sembrando Semillas sending a delegation to NMCE with Toribio Garicia and Angel Martinez being our 3rd year veteranos. Angel did a digital storytelling piece last year at NMCE ’06 that was used in this year’s storyboarding training. Toribio also started his digital storytelling piece entitled “How My Family Makes Chicos.” He later made a 2nd edition that earned him 2nd place and a $100 at the ¡ESE! Film Festival. New Mexico Civic Engagement has been a chance for us to interact with youth groups from all over the State that have different issues they want to fix in their communities.
