Padrino Recognition Awards

A Padrino is considered a person’s godfather, serving as a protector, mentor and confidant among the Latino communities. 

The Padrino Awards is based on a deeply rooted compadrazco system that exists all over Latino America. It is the notion of an extended family and the idea that many are there to support each other. 

The Ohio Padrino Recognition Awards is the most important recognition award presented to an individual, organizations or corporations who have provided mentorship, assistance, support and encouragement to the advancement to the Latino community in Ohio. 

This year, the Ohio Padrino Recognition Awards is partnering with the Ohio Hispanic Coalition in celebrating its 30th year of service to the community. This milestone represents the presence of the Latino community in Ohio for more than 30 years, as well as starting the celebration of the Hispanic Heritage Month.  


The Ohio Padrino Recognition Award will be held on Friday, September 17th, 2021 at the Westin Hotel in Downtown Columbus. The event begins at 6:00PM with a cocktail hour and follows by dinner and music.
