As part of its Hispanic Heritage Month celebration, one of the longest-running Spanish-language print media outlets recognizes Hispanic personalities who have made a positive contribution to their communities and who serve as role models for a new generation.
Highlighting their commitment to presenting exceptional voices within the Latino community, more than 300 people have been recognized for these awards, which this year, after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, will be held at the exclusive Harvard Club in New York.
At El Diario, we take great consideration and pride in sharing our community’s stories. Our century-long history marks our dedication to our Spanish-speaking readers and our unparalleled news coverage.
The honorees will appear in a special supplement, which will be available in the Sunday edition of El Diario on October 30, 2022.

“The selection process for the awards is always a rewarding experience for our teams, understanding the platform that this ceremony provides for men making a difference in the world. We greatly appreciate the work they do, serving as role models and examples for future generations,” added Villavicencio.
