La Voz Latina Recognition Banquet
The 4th Friday in August each year
YWCA La Voz Latina seeks nominations of Hispanic community members who are
deserving of recognition for their involvement and service to the community and/or serve as role
models for youth in the Northwestern Illinois community.
YWCA La Voz Latina judging committee volunteers review the nominations and select the
most outstanding nominees to receive the “Latino of Distinction” and the “Community Member
of Distinction” awards. Recipients are named at the annual banquet.
