The NFL and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation have a great history of celebrating excellence within Latino communities and this year’s program celebrates high school seniors from across NFL club markets who excel both in the classroom and on the field.
Earlier this season, NFL teams were invited to submit exemplary student-athletes to be considered for this year’s program. As part of the selection process, students were identified and nominated by many of the league’s clubs, leading to 56 remarkable nominees, many of whom were honored during Latino Heritage Month events in club markets…¡Por la Cultura!
A panel of NFL and HHF staff then convened to select eight outstanding finalists, who will each receive a grant award that can be used for college. This elite group will also participate in a variety of events being planned for Super Bowl LVIII week in Las Vegas. At that time, the NFL and HHF will also announce the national winner of the 2023 NFL Latino Youth Honors.
