||Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
36th Annual Humanitarian of the Year Awards
elcome to our new Humanitarian of the Year web page. Nominations for the prestigious awards for Humanitarian of the Year and Student Humanitarian of the Year may be submitted via this web page.
As in previous years, the Board of Supervisors will honor two outstanding individuals from our community as the Humanitarian of the Year and the Student Humanitarian of the Year. The recipients are recognized at the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday Commemoration which will be held next year on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 in the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors chambers.
We invite you to nominate deserving individuals for these awards. There are many inspiring individuals whose selfless dedication to others should be recognized by the citizens of Contra Costa County, and beyond. Unfortunately it is far too often that our heroes go unsung. We seek nominees who embody the humanitarian spirit of Dr. King's vision to promote equality, peace, and justice for all people based on proven leadership, commitment to community, and personal integrity. It is our goal to cast our net, so to speak, far and wide within our County to garner as many qualified nominees as possible for this esteemed honor. We invite you to nominate people that you believe embody that spirit.
To facilitate the nomination process you may submit your nomination application here on this web page. Simply fill in the appropriate spaces and tell us why you believe your nominee is deserving of this esteemed award.
