The Brother of Excellence Award program recognizes and honors the outstanding achievements, enhances the perception and raises community awareness of the positive contributions of minority men.

Each year, at minimum, 1 minority man will be selected the Brother of Excellence winner and recognized at an event. Each winner could be subject to a cash award. However, he will receive local and national recognition and a trophy prize. The winner(s) will be announced during our annual Brother of Excellence Award Ceremony every February. Winner(s) will be recognized at an event, with the ability to present a speech and be featured in publicity/marketing materials. They will also have an opportunity to participate in organization programs and special appearances to promote and enhance the organization.
