This annual award honors those who keep the spirit of MLK Jr. alive.

Ocean City annually honors residents of Ocean City with the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Service Award. This award is given to those who exemplify the philosophy and ideas of the late Dr. King, who worked to advance civil rights, equal education, labor rights, voter rights and who fought racial inequality through non-violence and civil disobedience.

The award particularly emphasizes volunteer activity and service to the people and community of Ocean City by a person outside of a work setting for a minimum of two years. Ocean City is now seeking nominations for the 2024 award. A committee appointed by the Department of Community Services will select the award recipient and finalists from the nominations.

The nominee and nominator will be notified by December 15, 2023 and honored on January 15, 2024 during the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Ceremony at the Ocean City Music Pier. The ceremony starts at 12 p.m.

Nominations can be made online at www.ocnj.us/MLKNomination
