Only five more days remain to advocate for those dedicated to promoting nonviolence, justice and compassion.
September 26, 2018
Celebrate individuals who exemplify the ideals of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. by nominating them for the 2018 MLK Peace Award.
The award annually recognizes a Metropolitan State University of Denver student, faculty or staff member, or member of the Denver community, whose commitment to service and activism has helped promote King’s vision for civil rights and social change.
Nominations are due Oct. 1, and awards are granted based on a person’s community activism, advocacy and depth of involvement.
Award winners will be announced Jan. 11 at the Peace Breakfast, which celebrates the life, legacy and ideals of King as well as those keeping his spirit and dream alive.
Nominations must address each of the following criteria:
- Community Activism: In what ways is the nominee involved with the community? How do those actions promote peace, justice and compassion for all people?
- Advocacy: For whom is the nominee advocating through his/her community involvement? How wide is this nominee’s scope?
- Depth of Involvement: How long has the nominee been committed to his/her cause(s)? To what extent is the nominee involved with the cause(s)? In what ways is the nominee’s dedication to the cause(s) evident?
