Multicultural Awards Banquet

2018 Multi Cultural Awards Banquet

The 30th Annual Multicutural Awards Banquet will take place from 6-9 p.m. on Oct. 4, at the Jewish Community Center in Boulder. Watch for additional details soon.

The Multicultural Award Banquet celebrates people of color who have made significant contributions in the areas of Arts, Business, Community Service, Education, Health, Government, and Science & Technology.

Community Action Programs organized the first Multicultural Awards Banquet in 1989 to honor people of color who have made major contributions to the arts, business, community service, education, government, health, partners (people from the White/Anglo community who work with people of color to promote social justice around race issues), science, and youth throughout Boulder County. That event marked the first county-wide recognition of the accomplishments of people of color. The banquet sends a positive message to people by introducing them to ethnically diverse people who are making a difference in their community.
