Denver and Johnstown High School students honored at Hispanic Heritage Foundation’s Youth Awards
Youth Awardees are selected for their leadership in the classroom and community and will receive grants for their education, or to fund an idea or community project
The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF) announced the recipients of the Regional Hispanic Heritage Youth Awards. Local high school seniors were honored for their leadership in the classroom and community during a virtual ceremony on March 2nd.
Now in its 22nd year, this educational grant program honors Latino high school seniors who excel in the classroom and community and for their excellence in various categories.
In each of the virtual ceremonies, three students (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) were honored in every category. After the Youth Awards Regional Ceremonies concluded, one national recipient was recognized in each of the categories and celebrated at the National Youth Awards Ceremony.
The Youth Awardees received grants for their education, or to fund an idea or community project to encourage “actionable leadership,” which is HHF’s call to action. Recipients will be mentored by past Youth Awardees as they prepare to attend college and into their careers through HHF’s award-winning Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) workforce development program.

“We are thrilled to honor yet another outstanding class of Youth Awardees who will carry on the tradition of excellence from past recipients,” said Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO. “There is no shortage of Latino talent across the United States and we are grateful to our dedicated sponsors who understand the importance of investing in the youngest and most dynamic segment of our population. We’re in good hands as a community and as a country with these outstanding young leaders going forward.” Visit
