The Syracuse University Martin Luther King Jr. 2017 Celebration committee is seeking nominations for the Unsung Heroes Awards, which will be presented during the evening celebration in the Carrier Dome on January 29, 2017. 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. To be eligible for this award, nominees should not have received widespread recognition or been previously honored for their efforts, and their work should be ongoing and outside their normal job/student expectations.
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
• Student at Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF
• Faculty or Staff from Syracuse University or SUNY-ESF
The deadline for submitting nominations is Monday, October 10, 2016.
