The purpose of this event is to recognize young Hindu leaders for their achievements in academics, service, and leadership.

This event allows for Hindu youth with similar beliefs, values, and interests to connect and create a strong and well-knit community. 

Additional highlights of this event include recognition of donors and organizations for their commitment and support to an important cause, speeches from special guests interspersed with a cultural program. HH Rtadhvaja Swami who was born and raised in North Dakota will be the guest speaker. He travels to inspire devotees, especially the youth. Swapnil Agarwal, Founder and CEO of Nitya Capital, who was named Entrepreneur of the Year in 2017 will be the guest of honor.

There will be an exclusive youth session from 5:45-6:30 pm during which the youth will have the opportunity to speak directly to the special guests and ask questions.

Partha Krishnaswamy, HGH President, stated, “Every year we see increasing number of nominations for the youth award which not only reflects the value this recognition creates, but it also demonstrates increasing youth involvement in selfless community service, which is a healthy indicator in our society”.

Bhawna Luthra, Hindu Youth Awards Coordinator and HGH Board of Director, commented, “It has been a great pleasure collaborating with ISKCON Houston for this year’s Hindu Youth Awards. I am looking forward to making this event a huge success. I hope that this event can continue to inspire youth in the community to follow the footsteps of those recognized and to excel in service, academics, and leadership”.
