NBCLatino celebrates our heritage with "NBCLATINO INNOVATORS"
Hispanic Heritage Month is here and what better way to celebrate than festivals, food and people! Right? NBCLatino.com, whom I've seen all over the web world, announced the launch of "NBCLatino Innovators." In partnership with NBC News, MSNBC, and NBCNews.com, NBCLatino will spotlight 20 Hispanic innovators from across the country who are making outstanding contributions across a variety of fields-- from engineering and technology, to the arts, philanthropy and more.
The "NBCLatino Innovators" series will appear on "TODAY," "NBC Nightly News" and MSNBC and features NBC News journalists such as Diana Alvear. The first few Innovators that will appear on NBCLatino.com as part of the series include: Rosa Obregon, Paul Pauca and Judith Baca.
And because highlighting our leaders isn't enough, NBCLatino is asking their readers for their input as well. There are hundreds and thousands of Latino leaders but we each individually know more. NBCLatino will be asking its social media community to vote on their favorite Innovator. The nominee with the most "Likes" and comments on Facebook will be featured at the end of the "NBCLatino Innovator" campaign. The NBCLatino team will also run a "Who Did We Miss?" feature once all of the Innovators are revealed. Users can submit their ideas throughout Hispanic Heritage Month on NBCLATINO'S FACEBOOK PAGE and by use the #latinoinnovators hashtag on Twitter.
