Dartmouth MLK Celebration Seeks Student Organization Nominations for Social Justice Awards

Article Type 

The MLK Celebration Committee is currently taking student organization nominations for the Social Justice Awards!

So many Dartmouth student organizations work to promote the principles of equality and solidarity through their demonstrated compassion, perseverance, courage, and leadership.  These organizations work incredibly hard, yet there are limited ways in which they can be recognized for the outstanding work that they do.

The Social Justice Awards seeks to do exactly that!  We hope to honor those organizations that have tirelessly engaged in the difficult work of fostering human dignity and our common humanity.  For it is their projects, programs, and visions that truly inspire the Dartmouth community to want to make a difference.

Student organizations that have been nominated in the past include:
    o    DMS Community Service Committee ('05)
    o    Girls Mentoring ('05)
    o    Darfur Action Group ('06)
    o    Engineers Without Borders ('06)
    o    Outdoor Leadership Experience ('06)
    o    Mascoma Clinic ('07)
    o    Student Enrichment At Dartmouth (SEAD) ('07)
    o    Dartmouth Ends Hunger ('08)
    o    MedLife ('08)
    o    DMS Physicians for Human Rights ('10)

We hope that you will consider nominating an organization that has inspired you through their passion and dedication to social justice work.  Nominations are due Monday, Nov 15th, and are welcome from all members of the Dartmouth community.  We look forward to reading yours!
