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.

The Who’s Who in Asian American Communities Awards – believes that recognition for Asian Americans is long overdue – considering the extensive history that they have had throughout the entire 50-states for more than 150 years. A number of contributions and achievements that Asian Americans have made in this country are featured in this mini-documentary of how Asians came to the shores of America.
