Nominations needed by June 19 for Multicultural Awards

Friday, May 30, 2014

Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Community Action Program (CAP) is seeking nominations for the 26th annual Multicultural Awards Banquet to be held October 2, 2014.

The banquet recognizes people of different ethnic backgrounds who have made significant contributions to Boulder County in the areas of arts, business, community service, education, government, health, youth (19 and younger), science and partners. “Partners” seeks a person from the white/Anglo community who works with people of color to promote social justice around race issues.

Nominations must be submitted by Thursday, June 19. Nomination forms are available by visiting and clicking on “Multicultural Awards,” or calling 303-441-3976. Nominations should be submitted to Sheila Goetz at or P.O. Box 471, Boulder, CO  80306.

The theme for the banquet, "Cross the Bridge and Join Together," is particularly appropriate in a ceremony that bridges cultural differences. This event sends a positive message to the community and shows young people successful role models making a difference in the community. Proceeds from the banquet provide scholarships for multicultural students.

Last year's Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients were:
