Nominate Community Volunteers for Local and Emerging Legend Awards

Tue, 30 Oct 2012 11:43:56 EST

Awards will be presented at 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Breakfast

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Breakfast Committee is seeking nominations for its annual Local Legend and Emerging Legend awards program.

Each year during the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Breakfast, the committee honors three people who are actively involved in their communities, demonstrating Dr. King's dedication to nonviolent social change. The Local Legend award honors those with a legacy of service. The Emerging Legend award was inaugurated in 2009 to honor a young person who is emerging as an outstanding community volunteer.

Both nomination forms – due Nov. 23, 2012 – are available online at http://www.mlkbreakfast.com/LocalLegends/Default.aspx.

The theme of the 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Breakfast is Education: 'The Fierce Urgency of Now.'

Winners receive two complimentary tickets to the breakfast and recognition for their valuable service in front of the breakfast's approximately 2,000 attendees and a live TV audience watching the breakfast on Twin Cities Public Television. Nominees must be residents of Minnesota to be eligible to win.

The 2013 breakfast will be held Jan. 21 at the Minneapolis Convention Center and features a keynote address by Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund.

Tickets are now available.

The 23rd annual holiday breakfast is sponsored by UNCF and the General Mills Foundation. For more information, visit www.MLKBreakfast.com.
