Nominations Sought for Martin Luther King Jr. 2018 Celebration Unsung Heroes Awards
The Syracuse University Martin Luther King Jr. 2018 Celebration committee is seeking nominations for the Unsung Heroes Awards, which will be presented during the evening celebration in the Carrier Dome on Jan. 28, 2018.

Nominations may be made in any of the following categories:
• youth/teen from Onondaga, Madison, Oswego, Cayuga or Cortland counties
• adult from Onondaga, Madison, Oswego, Cayuga or Cortland counties
