Individual, Youth and Business Pathfinder Award Nominations Sought
MANKATO, Minn. (October 11, 2018) - The Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Board is seeking nominations for the annual Individual Pathfinder, Youth Pathfinder and Business Pathfinder Awards.
The Pathfinder Award was created in 1986 to recognize individuals or organizations that, in the spirit of Dr. King, are initiators or action takers in the struggle for equal treatment, human rights and non-violence. The award represents the ideal that all people should be treated fairly and equally without the fear of discrimination on any basis.
The Young Pathfinder Award was added in 2002 to recognize the commitment and courage displayed by area young people to achieve fair and equal treatment for all, healthy communities and peaceful resolution to conflicts.
The Business Pathfinder Award was established in 2003 and is presented by Greater Mankato Growth to recognize businesses that strive for equal treatment, human rights and non-violence in the workplace.
The deadline for the 2019 Pathfinder Award nominations is November 20, 2018.
Pathfinder Award recipients will be honored at the 35th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration, which will be held on Monday, January 21, 2019 at the Centennial Student Union Ballroom at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Snow date will be Tuesday, January 22, 2019.
