Nominations Sought For Citizenship Award
FRANKFORT, Ky. - A Kentucky commission is taking nominations for an award based on the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Citizenship Award is given to someone who embodies the spirit and energy of the late civil-rights leader. Nominations are being taken by the Martin Luther King Jr. State Commission, which is part of the Governor's Office of Minority Empowerment.
The commission is seeking nominees who show leadership in promoting such principles as racial equality and economic justice.
Nominations are also being sought for essay and artwork contests. The theme is "Moving Beyond the Dream to Brighten the Future.'' The contest is open to kindergarten to 12th-graders. They can submit an essay or two-dimensional artwork based on King.
The winners will be recognized at a ceremony in January.
