I googled the program and it seems that there isn’t a lot of info about it. Basically all that college board says is they the requirements are the following, and that you must be a junior in is high school. So you can’t use a PSAT 10 or the ´PSAT score you took as a sophomore. I have no idea what gpa or psat score they use as a benchmark for admissions but i’d say considering your gpa is very far above the minimum that you’re in good standing. Good luck! Also note this is not a monetary scholarship, it’s just an award that you can use to get scholarships elsewhere.

Take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of their junior year.

Achieve the minimum requested PSAT/NMSQT scores (qualifying level may vary by state each year).

Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.

Identify as African American, Hispanic or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.

I don't have any deeper knowledge of the program itself, but it does look like you're above the cutoffs for recognition no matter what region you happen to be in (https://www.compassprep.com/national-hispanic-recognition-program/). Not entirely sure what that means for your chances in the end, but you should have a reasonable chance.
