Asian American Heroes of Colorado Awards
Unfortunately, the 2020 and 2021 Asian American Heroes of Colorado awards were cancelled. We are looking forward to 2022! Nominations will open January 2022 for awardees to be recognized in May 2022 in celebration of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month!
Each year, heroes are selected by a committee comprised of members from Colorado's Asian community organizations, including but not limited to: Asian Pacific Development Center, OCA Colorado, Asian Chamber of Commerce, Asian Avenue magazine, Mile High Japanese American Citizens League, Asian Pacific Development Center, Colorado Asian Culture and Education Network, and National Association of Asian American Professionals – Colorado.
Each award recipient will be presented a certificate of recognition and be featured in the May cover story of Asian Avenue magazine. There are two special awards: Lifetime Achievement Award and Young Hero Award (under age 35).
