The Latino Trendsetter Awards are given by DTM (Defining Trends Magazine) to leaders and innovators in the Hispanic community who maintain high levels of standards through their actions and deeds.  They are the ones who are not afraid to stand out from the pack in order to make a difference and define trends that influence both the mainstream and the Latino/Hispanic culture from which they have arose. Another part of the festivities are the scholarships being awarded to college students in the CUNY system – this year, 5% of the event proceeds will be given to the scholarship fund for deserving CUNY students.


This year’s lucky scholarship winners are: Melinda Gonzales of CUNY Lehman College; and Victoria Rodriguez of the City College of New York, with more winners to be announced.
