The Denver Public Library is accepting nominations for its 20th annual Latino Community Service Awards. The awards honor individuals who have made a deep and lasting impact in our community. Each year, the library honors Latino leaders with three awards named after Lena L. Archuleta, Eric J. Duran and César Chávez. Winners are selected by a committee of library commissioners, community members and library staff.
This year, the library is celebrating the 20th year anniversary of the awards. The event is part of the Denver Public Library’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. This month-long celebration (Sept.15 - Oct. 15), honors and celebrates the history, the many contributions, and the rich culture of Latinos.
Nominations are due by 5 p.m. Friday, July 8, 2022, and may be submitted online at www.denverlibrary.org/latino-awards, or sent via U.S. mail to: Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales Branch Library, c/o Nadia Rendon, 1498 N. Irving Street, Denver, CO 80204
Award recipients will be notified in July. A community celebration will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022 at 10 a.m., location to be determined.
