The Human Relations Commission is accepting nominations for the 2021 Martin Luther King Jr. Young Dreamers Awards. Nominations are open to the public and must be received by Dec. 16, 2020.

The Young Dreamers Awards honor two young adult leaders who have made a tangible difference in the lives of those who may have otherwise been overlooked, ignored or disadvantaged. The awards will recognize a man and a woman.

Nominees must be Winston-Salem residents between the ages of 18 and 40 who have done outstanding work in the Winston-Salem community that is in the spirit of how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived and encouraged others to live. Specific examples include fostering positive race relations, vocalizing or acting against injustice, encouraging inclusiveness among all individuals, embracing those who are perceived as being different, and celebrating religious diversity.

Nominees cannot already hold leadership (i.e., supervisory or management) positions in their organization. The members of the Human Relations Commission will choose the winners.

A link to the nomination form and more information is available at CityofWS.org/HumanRelations.
