Call for Nominations: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Building Bridges Awards
In appreciation for dedication to service and outstanding leadership
Each year on the third Monday of January, schools and federal offices close across America as we celebrate the birth, the life, and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year the holiday will be celebrated on January 18, 2010. The holiday symbolizes our nation's commitment to peace through justice; to universal brotherhood and sisterhood; and to a democratic society based on the principles of freedom, justice, and equality for all people.
As part of Indiana University Bloomington's MLK Day Celebration, we will recognize individuals and organizations whose leadership and passion fulfill Dr. King's dreams and ideas. Campus and community members are encouraged to submit nominations.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Building Bridges Awards are given to those individuals that embody the spirit of Dr. King. A person/organization receiving this award will be recognized for the effort that he/she/it has put forth to promote unity, equity, and diversity without regard to race, sex, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, or disability.
