Committee for King presents three annual awards: the Image Award, the Community Service Award, and the Drum Major Award. The Image award recognizes an individual, group or organization whose work or talent has significantly contributed to the aesthetics of the community. The Community Service Award lifts up an individual or organization that seeks love, compassion, respect and racial harmony as evidenced through consistent volunteer community service. The Drum Major Award honors individuals who evidence deep commitment to the ideals shown in Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and work.

Nominations for these awards may made by any community member. Forms and deadline for nominations are available on the website. Only Committee for King Board members may vote on the nominations.
