Nominations now being accepted for 11th Annual Colorado Rockies Adult Leadership Award
By / MLB.com
The Colorado Rockies are currently accepting nominations for the 2013 Adult Leadership Award, to be presented in September in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Awareness Month at Coors Field. This season marks the 11th year that the Rockies organization has honored exceptional youth and adult leaders in the Hispanic Community. The deadline for nominations is August 2, 2013. Nomination packets may be obtained online at www.coloradorockies.com/hispanic, or by calling (303) ROCKIES.
In September, the Rockies will be honoring several individuals in the Hispanic community. A pregame on-field ceremony at Coors Field on Sunday September 22 will culminate a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. In addition to honoring the winner of the 2013 Adult Leadership Award, the organization will also recognize several youth winners of the 2013 Youth Artistic Contest. The pregame ceremonies will include cultural and musical entertainment.
The Colorado Rockies Adult Leadership Award was developed to recognize individuals who demonstrate a commitment to the Hispanic community through community involvement, the promotion of family values and personal achievements. Eligible recipients are Colorado residents who are actively involved in the Hispanic community, but they need not be Hispanic themselves. The overall award winner will receive 2014 Rockies Season Tickets and have their name added to a plaque displayed inside the Coors Field home plate entrance.
