About the HSA Spirit Awards
HND has hosted the HSA Spirit Awards since 2011 as a way to recognize Hmong Student Associations for their creativity, outstanding ambitions, the difference they are making in their communities and campuses, and the strong sense of pride they exhibit in their Hmong American identity. The competition is based on a video submission from each HSA that showcases the conference theme. This year, student groups were asked to create a video depicting the theme: Be Bold Unleash Your Potential.
A first place winner and a runner-up are selected by a panel of judges and announced prior to the conference. You can read more about the awards here.
