Each year FIRN’s American Success Award recognizes and celebrates foreign-born individuals who live or work in Howard County and have made significant contributions to promoting and highlighting not only immigrants’ achievements in the county but fostering a greater awareness of Howard County’s diversity.
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.

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.
