Hispanic Heritage Month has been celebrated in the United States since 1988, when President Ronald Reagan signed a law that officially recognized the presence of Latinos in the country and acknowledged the substantial contributions they have made to the U.S. society ever since the inception of the republic.

He declared Hispanic Heritage as a mont-long and nation-wide celebration in 1988


This year, we have rebranded the award ceremony as “Ambassador Manuel Torres Awards”. The late Ambassador Torres was the first ambassador of Nueva Granada, present-day Colombia, acknowledged by U.S. President James Monroe on June 19, 1822. This act represented the first U.S. recognition of a former Spanish colony’s independence. AL DÍA will celebrate Manuel Torres almost 200 years after his death, because his spirit, as well as his memory, give the celebration of Hispanic Heritage in the U.S. a new meaning.

He received in 1822 the credentials of Manuel Torres as the firs Ambassador of  "La Gran Colombia", first ever recognized Latin American Republic in Washington DC.


The “Archetypes” in 2021 are the best reflections of excellence among Americans of Latino descent in the current century in the areas of Health, Education, Science, Public service, the Arts and the Entrepreneurial Spirit, among others. These are the AL DIA Archetypes., classes of 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, and 2016.
