Update: Nominations have closed. Please watch the blog for announcements on Feb. 19, 2013, of the nominees.
Political leaders, religious leaders, writers, entertainers, humanitarians — there are plenty of people who speak Spanish whom we can look up to. Please let us know which Spanish speaker you admire the most so he or she can be eligible for a 2013 About.com Readers' Choice Award. Any living person who speaks Spanish can be nominated. If the person speaks Spanish as a second language, he or she should regularly speak Spanish in public, such as to Spanish-language audiences or the media. Deadline for nominations is at the end of the day EST on Feb. 11, 2013.
