Awards of $1,000 to USA and territories Hispanic high school seniors for academic excellence and community service. Funds may be used for higher education expenses or community service projects. Current categories include, but are not limited to: education, business and finance, engineering, entrepreneurship, healthcare and science, media and entertainment, public service, social justice, and technology.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze recipients are selected in each category and receive a one-time grant to fund their college education or to fund a community service effort that tackles a social issue.

The Youth Awards program is the main pipeline to Hispanic Heritage Foundation's (HHF) system of talent that prepares and positions Latino youth through the award-winning Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) program as they transition from high school, to college, to graduate school, and into their careers. 

Once selected, recipients will be celebrated in 10 virtual ceremonies and will become part of the broader HHF network of 200,000 professionals and fulfill a unique cycle of leadership where recipients meet America's priorities in the classroom and workforce.
