The theme for this year’s celebration is “Continuing the Journey: Where do we go from here?” The awards are presented annually to people who, in the spirit of Dr. King’s “beloved community,” have made a positive difference in the lives of others but who are not widely recognized for their efforts.
Nominations may be made in any of the following categories:
- Youth/teen from the Greater Syracuse community
- Adult from the Greater Syracuse community
- Student at SU or the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF)
- Faculty or staff from SU or SUNY-ESF
The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday, Nov. 20, 2009.
