The Juchimán de Plata Award is a prize granted by Juchimanes de Plata, a Mexican civil association, to those personalities distinguished by their achievements in arts and literature, in science and technology, in communication sciences, and in human rights and peace. Four Juchimán de Plata Awards are granted on an annually basis, at a state, national and international level. The Juchimán de Plata Award includes a 15-cm height silver replica of the huge Olmec sculpture of the same name (which was found in 1884 in the municipality of Huimanguillo, state of Tabasco), set on a wood base and including a golden plate and the high-relief foundation's logo. The reasons why the award is granted in each case are described therein. The prize is granted by the civil association's Permanent Directive Committee.
