Contra Costa County will commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the 44th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ceremony on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. In the spirit of Dr. King’s work, this year’s theme is “One People, One Nation, One Dream.” The County now seeks nominations for a Student and Adult Humanitarian of the Year. 

Contra Costa County’s Board of Supervisors will recognize two individuals, (1) a community member and (2) a student leader, whose dedication to others embodies the spirit and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the January event.

We welcome your nominations of a community member or student whose accomplishments and actions go above and beyond to positively impact Contra Costa County, its residents and communities. Please nominate candidates who demonstrate leadership, commitment to the community, and personal integrity. 

The deadline to submit candidates for consideration is Friday, November 5, 2021. To submit online nominations and learn more about the County’s celebration, visit the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Ceremony website.
