Congratulations to our 2019 Awardees!  Visit our Awardees Page for a list of awardees, our Photos Album Page for event photos and our MLK Video for a detailed video of this year's projects.


Through funding from the Florida Legislature, Hillsborough Community College in partnership with St. Petersburg College seeks to perpetuate the same goals for the upcoming year by promoting an MLK Day of Service.  This project offers awards to organizations or groups to develop and complete a service project that will positively impact the community, while honoring Dr. King’s legacies of non-violent activism, racial equality, service to others and social uplift.

The awards are intended to encourage service projects that address education, health, clean energy/environmental stewardship, economic opportunity, disaster preparedness, veterans and military families’ issues, public safety, while supporting neighborhood projects, or a proposal that you feel will positively impact our community. Please note these funds are available solely to engage people in volunteer projects.

All projects should demonstrate collaboration with others in the community.  Partner with organizations such as colleges, volunteer centers, youth service organizations, sororities, fraternities, military family support programs, city departments, service organizations, athletic organizations, elementary and middle schools, high schools, parent teacher associations, professional organizations, businesses, corporations, etc.
