2020 County Supervisor’s Award Guidelines
San Diego Outstanding Asian and Pacific Islander Students County Supervisor’s Award (County Supervisor’s Award) is sponsored jointly by San Diego County Supervisor and San Diego Asian Americans for Equality (SDAAFE). The purpose of this award is to celebrate and recognize API students’ achievements in the areas of science and technology, arts and culture, sports development, and civil and community engagement.
