Nominations being accepted for 20th annual Diamante Awards


May 15, 2009: Like La Prensa, the Diamante Awards celebrates its 20th year of supporting the Toledo area Latino community. Since the inception of the latter, over 100 individuals and organizations have received scholarships and awards for their achievements and contributions. 


This year’s ceremony will take place at the Franciscan Theatre & Conference Center of Lourdes College on Friday, September 11, 2009.


Nominations are now being accepted for the following Diamante Awards: Latino/Latina Youth Leadership, Latino/Latina Adult Leadership, Corporation/Community Agency, and Friend of the Latino Community


In a press release received from Lourdes College, it was stated that “winners are chosen based on recognition of exemplary leadership and achievements within the Latino community or community at large, demonstrated excellence in their fields, dedication and commitment in an ethical and inclusive fashion and modeling qualities and behaviors of a mentor for youth and the community”—the identity of the awards group was not stated.


The Diamante Awards committee comprises Bowling Green State University, Lourdes College, Owens Community College, and The University of Toledo and was originally founded by the former Northwest Ohio Latino advocacy organization IMAGE.


All nominations are due by July 14, 2009. To nominate an individual and/or organization for any of the above awards, visit www.lourdes.edu/diamante and complete the online nomination form. For more information please contact Kelly Dilworth, Diamante Committee Co-Chair, at [email protected].
