Cultural Jambalaya Diversity Awards

Cultural Jambalaya Diversity Awards

The Cultural Jambalaya Diversity Awards are established to recognize individuals and groups that advance our collective understanding of the cultural, ethnic and racial groups that make Minnesota a dynamic, prosperous and thriving place.

The Diversity Awards honor four inspirational Minnesota champions who have made a positive difference by advancing multiculturalism or cultural diversity in their Minnesota community.

The Diversity Awards are presented in four categories:

  • To a K-12 student or group of students
  • To a K-12 teacher or group of teachers
  • To an individual or group of individuals (adults)
  • To an organization (a business, nonprofit or community organization)


The Diversity Awards will be presented at Cultural Jambalaya’s annual event to be held October 4, 2018 at the Metropolitan Ballroom in Golden Valley, Minn.  The winner’s attendance at the event is required.

Submit an early bird nomination form by May 10, 2018 and the nominator’s name will be
entered in a drawing for two free tickets to our gala on October 4, 2018.

Deadline for nominations is June 10, 2018. Winners will be selected by an independent panel of judges and will be notified by July 11, 2018.
