Community Celebration 

The Pathfinder Awards recipients will be honored at the 34th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration on Monday, January 15, 2018. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. with hors d’ oeuvres and social time.

The program begins at 6:15 p.m. with the awards, followed by entertainment at 6:45 p.m. and our keynote at 7p.m.


Three awards are presented at the banquet:


The Pathfinder Award was created in 1986 to recognize individuals or organizations that, in the spirit of Dr. King, are initiators or action takers in the struggle for equal treatment, human rights and non-violence.


The Young Pathfinder Award was added in 2002 to recognize the commitment and courage displayed by area young people to achieve fair and equal treatment for all, healthy communities and peaceful resolution to conflicts.


The Business Pathfinder Award was established in 2003 and is presented by Greater Mankato Growth to recognize businesses that strive for equal treatment, human rights and non-violence in the workplace.


Nominate someone you know for the Pathfinder Award.
