The second annual Tsehai Award program is a unique, international, competitive award that recognizes the best of the best by honoring individuals and organizations that have demonstrated excellence in many categories including literature, art, music, cinema, social activism, academic and other professionals.
Each year Tsehai calls for submissions of work produced or published in the last calendar year. Entries in these categories are reviewed and judged by panels of distinguished professionals. Winners will be announced in May and receive awards, prizes and will be honored at the Tsehai Awards dinner banquet in September, 2009.
The Tsehai Awards Banquet evening includes a dinner, the presentation of the competitive Tsehai awards and the honoree awards. This gala event will be attended by leaders of our community. The highlight of the evening is the presentation of the prestigious Tsehai Award of Honor and Tsehai Lifetime Achievement Awards, given to men and women who have produced a life time of work that contributed to the betterment of our society and endure extreme adversity in the process.
