Human Dignity Award

The YMCA’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Dignity Award is annually bestowed upon a person who exemplifies Dr. King’s work and character.

The inaugural award was given in 1986 to Rufus DeWitt, the first Executive Director of the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA.

Subsequent honorees continue to embody Dr. King’s spirit and humanitarian ideals. All nominees are submitted for recognition by their peers and are chosen by a prestigious committee that includes past recipients.

Youth Poetry and Art Tribute

Dr. King’s legendary “I Have a Dream” speech from 1963 is the inspiration for this Youth Poetry and Art Contest, sponsored by Wells Fargo.

Youth from across San Diego County are invited to submit poetry, art, essays, or spoken-word pieces that illustrate the impact the work of Dr. King has had on their lives.

Deadline for submissions to the Youth Poetry and Art Contest is December 27, 2017.
