This September 29th, 2010, LATISM was honored to be invited to the 24th Annual Hispanic Heritage Awards, courtesy of Sprint!
The Awards were established by the White House in 1987 to commemorate Hispanic Heritage Month. Since then, the awards [via The Hispanic Heritage Foundation (HHF)], have honored Latino leaders who have made a positive impact in the United States in various fields and served as role models.
We are very grateful to Sprint for allowing us the chance to “codearnos” with the creme de la creme of Latino celebs and enjoy the excitement of the awards ceremony.
Here, in pictures and videos, we invite you to enjoy the recap and also some shoutouts to LATISM from some of the stars in attendance:
