About the awards

The Hispanic Heritage Awards were established by The White House in 1987 to commemorate the creation of Hispanic Heritage Month in America.

The Hispanic Heritage Awards are considered among the "highest honor for Latinos by Latinos" and recognize notable Latinos who have made a positive impact on America and the world. Hispanic Heritage Foundation’s award winning LOFT (Latinos on Fast Track) program identifies, prepares and connects Latinos in various fields including entertainment.
