The first-place selections, who each received a $500 Visa gift card, included:
- Zuleima A. for Cardenas Markets;
- Ariana G. for El Rancho Supermercado; and
- Aubry R. for Tony’s Fresh Market.
Nearly 1,000 La Catrina submissions were received, and $3,000 in prizes were awarded to 19 contest finalists across six states.
Entrants were encouraged to get into the Day of the Dead season by submitting a photo of themselves with La Catrina style sugar skull make-up through respective company websites.
“Día de Los Muertos is a significant Hispanic holiday deeply rooted in tradition and symbolism, and one of the most recognizable figures during this special time is La Catrina,” said Adam Salgado, chief marketing officer for Heritage Grocers Group.
“We are dedicated to embracing, honoring and promoting the rich traditions of Hispanic culture, and we are so pleased to have expanded this year’s contest to all our banner companies across six states.”
