ABOUT THE HISPANIC HERITAGE AWARD

HONORS INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE PROVIDED OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY

The Hispanic Heritage Awards Celebration occurs in October, during Hispanic Heritage Month. Its purpose is to recognize respected Hispanic community leaders and organizations that exemplify the values of Scouting through their service and support of our community.

The recipient is honored at the Hispanic Heritage Award Event.

The committee has also decided to present the Whitney M. Young and Lifetime Awards some years to recognize a recipients commitment to serving multiple cultures throughout South Florida.

WHO ATTENDS?

Friends and business partners of the honoree purchase corporate sponsorship packages and reserve tables at the event.

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

The event is run by a volunteer organizing committee, comprised of friends and business partners of the honoree.
