PBS will be airing the 27th annual Hispanic Heritage Awards on September 29th. The actual ceremony was held on September 18th at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.

Among the award recipients were Zoe Saldaña, Carlos Vives, Bernie Williams, Rep. Ruben Hinojosa, and a high school robotics team.

“The Hispanic Heritage Foundation is proud to honor yet another inspiring group of Latino leaders, and having past Honoree Eddie Olmos and longtime supporter and great friend of our organization Judy Reyes host made the evening even more special,” said Jose Antonio Tijerino, president and CEO of HHF. “The Hispanic community has made significant contributions throughout history, and we are proud to recognize that impact.  I can’t think of a greater sampling of music, culture, and the Latin spirit than the line-up we assembled tonight thanks to our Presenting Sponsor Target and our amazing sponsors. We are also thrilled to partner with PBS so that America can share in our celebration during the September 29th broadcast on local PBS stations.”

 The Hispanic Heritage Awards were established in 1987 by the White House to commemorate the creation of Hispanic Heritage Month in America.
