The WWAAC Awards are dedicated to honoring successful Asians who serve as leaders and role models in their respective communities. The purpose of the WWAAC Awards is to recognize the accomplishments of these leaders, publicize their achievements, and promote the Asian American community into mainstream America.
In nine years, the WWAAC Awards have honored 135 distinguished Asian Americans and UPS, McDonald’s and State Farm Insurance as the WWAAC Corporate Champions.
For over one hundred fifty years, Asian Americans have made enormous contributions to the prosperity and success of this great nation. While there are many different Who’s Who organizations recognizing outstanding members of our society, very few, if any, focus on the prominent Asian Americans who have been our role models for success, great contributors to our community and to the nation, and distinguished figures in their own professions.
