As revealed at APAHM Opening Ceremony, we are having an awards show! Just as the theme states, there are many hidden figures and underrated organizations that put immense passion for its culture and values. IT’S TIME to acknowledge, celebrate, and recognize the APAC community at UCF and really enjoy a night looking back at these last few semesters.

Winners will be announced at the inaugural Hidden Lotus closing ceremony will be held on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the University of Central Florida’s Cape Florida Ballroom in the Student Union at 9:00 PM and is a FORMAL event.

The mission of the Asian Pacific American Coalition at UCF is to develop leadership, to be a source of political and social advocacy for issues facing Asian Americans, and to promote unity and a voice for the campus and community at UCF. Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month is our first ever annual student-run heritage month in conjunction with the Multicultural Student Center at the University of Central Florida. It is one of the many events that APAC holds to unite the Asian-American community and give them a chance to show what their organizations are about. We are bringing back awards to celebrate and recognize all the affiliated organizations efforts in bringing awareness to our culture, identity, and history.

There are multiple awards available for nominations, all nominees will be contacted. The Hidden Lotus was created in an effort to recognize organizations and individuals who have contributed to campus life and the Asian Pacific Islander American community at the University of Central Florida. All nominees must be from student organizations registered with the Office of Student Involvement or Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (unless stated otherwise) in the Summer 2017, Fall 2017, and Spring 2018 semesters.
