WASHINGTON – SEPTEMBER 19 – On Thursday, September 22, Univision Noticias, the award-winning news division of TelevisaUnivision, will hold the first edition of UNIVISIONARIOS, an initiative that celebrates Hispanic excellence.
UNIVISIONARIOS goes beyond announcing an annual list of the most influential Hispanics – it is a conversation about their contributions to strengthening their communities. This initiative will recognize and celebrate scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, artists, and advocates, as each plays a vital role in the prominent and growing Hispanic cultural landscape. An esteemed advisory board will choose ten finalists – and our audience chose one finalist in the MiUnivisionario category, voting ended on August 27 – that will ultimately be awarded $10,000 to the foundation of their choice as they continue to strive for a stronger community. The ten finalists will attend the UNIVISIONARIOS gala on September 22 in Washington, D.C.
The gala will feature performances from top artists, participation from Univision Noticias anchors, journalists, and talent, and engagement from notable Hispanic community leaders.
Viewers can watch live on September 22 at 8 p.m. ET on Univision.
