MLK Jr. Day Committee is seeking nominations for the 2016 Peacemaker Award given annually to an individual or group in Northern Berkshire.

The award, which originated as part of the local celebration of the life and work of Martin Luther King Jr., recognizes persons who have a history of working with people and/or neighborhoods and communities to provide for greater tolerance, understanding, and caring.

While the award may be made to a person or group well known in the region, those making nominations are particularly urged to consider those who have worked hard and have made contributions without much recognition.

Nomination forms are available at the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition office, 61 Main St., Suite 218, or by calling Liz Boland at 413-663-7588, ext. 19.

Nominations must be received by Nov. 30.
