Award Criteria

Local: Nominees for the Latino Leadership Awards must be over 18 and be a Latino residing and/or working in the greater Chattanooga area. Geographically, this means a 25 mile radius encircling the city center of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

 

Involved: While we love to recognize Latinos who are doing special things in their careers, the ideal nominee for the Latino Leadership Awards is also spending time outside the traditional workplace to make our community stronger and more inclusive.

 

Impactful: Leaders leave their mark everywhere. Whether it's at work, at school, with a local nonprofit, at a place of worship, in their neighborhood, or at home ~ we want to know about these leaders, and how their efforts are benefitting the people around them and the city they call home.
