The annual awards are Nov. 17 for American Indian Community Leader of the Year, Youth Services Role Model of the Year, American Indian Youth Ambassador of the Year, and Contributor/Supporter of the Year.

“The commission has received outstanding nominee applications in past years and looks forward to reviewing and awarding based on this year’s submittals,” said Nevada Indian Commission Executive Director Sherry Rupert. “This is a great way to acknowledge the hard work and influence that individuals are making in Nevada’s tribal communities.”

The annual event brings together all Nevadans to recognize the contributions of those in our communities who positively impact Nevada’s American Indians. Individual tickets for the awards banquet are $60. Tables of 10 and sponsorship opportunities are also available.
