The eclectic group has their work cut out for them — they’re judging more than 1,800 entries sent in via social media for a Hispanic Heritage Month-timed contest called #LoveSpanish, which encourages participants to write about why they adore Spanish. $15,000 is on the line in the scholarship competition, which is being held by the Spanish education site, SpanishDict.com.

It’s not the first time that the "Desperate Housewives" star, who was Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign co-chair and the co-founder of the Latino Victory Project, and Ros-Lehtinen have teamed up. The congresswoman is among lawmakers pushing to create a national Latino American history museum in Washington. Longoria is one of the high-profile proponents in the effort to build the museum.

Winners of the #LoveSpanish contest are expected to be announced next month.
