Humanitarian Award is awarded for exceptional dedication and service by an individual to mankind and is the most meritorious singular award that UNICO National may bestow on an individual. “The Cianci Humanitarian Award is granted to an individual who has demonstrated by word and deed a definite concern or and commitment to serving his fellow man. A person whose unselfish dedication has touched all people regardless of race, color, creed or national origin, the recipient of this award must have upheld, believed in and practiced the philosophical goals and objectives of UNICO National.”
