On June 4, 2014, FIRN will recognize the achievements and contributions of its foreign-born community at our Twelfth Annual American Success Awards Gala!
Since its beginning, immigrants have come to America with dreams of success for their new life. Here in Howard County, immigrants from around the world have seen that dream come true through satisfying and worthwhile jobs, outstanding professional careers, prosperous businesses, and generous civic involvement.
We are asking for your help to identify nominees who embody the spirit of “American Success.” The award criteria are that recipients must:
1) be foreign-born individuals who live or work in Howard County;
2) be either the owner of a successful Howard County business or have achieved a high level of success in his/her chosen profession; and
3) have made a significant contribution to either the ethnic or general community through his/her volunteer services in Howard County.
