Nominations for $18,500 worth of Scholarships Being Accepted Thru December 11th
The Austin Area Heritage Council is requesting nominations for the MLK Youth Scholarship Awards. The awards are part of Austin’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration. There are five $1500 awards sponsored by the Applied Materials Foundation, three $2000 awards sponsored by the Seton Healthcare Family, and five $1000 awards sponsored by Coca Cola.
MLK Celebration 2021 Plans Will Be Announced Soon
The current pandemic we are currently facing in the US is causing us to look differently at how we interact with family and friends and our communities. To that end, we are taking a more creative approach to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy in 2021. The 2021 MLK Community Festival has been cancelled. The traditional March has also been cancelled and we are considering creative approaches to honoring the day in a way that aligns with City of Austin Guidelines and pay tribute to the legacy of a truly amazing man!
Our other activities such as the Oratory contest and Youth Legacy Awards will proceed. Check back for details.
