September 2 deadline for Conexion Americas' awards for Unsung Heroes and Young Latin@ Writers

Conexion Americas' annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration is coming up.

They'll be kicking off HHM with a performance of their band RUMBA at Live on the Green downtown at Public Square downtown (opening for Los Lonely Boys) on September 15, and the big HHM celebration will take place at the Cannery on September 16.

Before Conexion's Cannery celebration, there is always an awards ceremony. Submissions for the two awards is open until September 2.

One of the awards is for high school students, and another is for unsung Latino heroes. The students submit essays, and the friends of the unsung heroes submit nominations.

It's always an amazing ceremony, recognizing the top three honorees for each award. Their stories are uplifting.

More details on submission guidelines below. Pay attention to that September 2 deadline!
