In addition to an adult honoree, Contra Costa County proudly honors a high school student each year who is an inspiration to fellow students. This year's theme is "Silence is Not an Option." We invite teachers, coaches, and other school staff to submit nomination information below.
Please use the following form to submit your nominee for Contra Costa County Student Humanitarian of the Year.
Please share your thoughts about the student, and why this individual is deserving of the honor. We are looking for students who stand out to their teachers, family and peers. Our winner will be someone who sets an example for others, and lives Dr. King's dream of equality, peace, justice, non-violence, leadership and inspiration. Please be as specific as you can.
If you prefer to enter your information directly on this form rather than attach a document, please use this space to explain your nominee's leadership and/or commitment to promoting diversity, equality, peace, justice and non-violence.
Announcement of the selection of the 43rd Annual Student Humanitarian of the Year will be made by early January. We will contact you directly if we have any questions about your submission.
If the student you nominated is selected, the Committee will need a high resolution JPEG format picture of the student to be used in the program for the ceremony and in a news release to the media. Please upload an image here, or if you need assistance email Antoine.Wilson@riskm.cccounty.us.
Plan on joining us for a virtual live stream of the event on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. for our annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day celebration. The Social Distancing Order of September 14 prevents a public gathering to ensure public safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. If your nominee is selected, you will be contacted with information and other arrangements for the day of the ceremony. Awards will be presented during the celebration, and the Humanitarian of the Year will be formally recognized by the Board of Supervisors, and offered an opportunity to say a few words.
