Tom Joyner kicked off the “Hardest Working Awards” on Memorial Day to recognize members of the community doing extraordinary things.
Listeners can write a 250-word nomination for an individual, local group or location by going to BlackAmericaWeb.com and completing the online form. There are several categories. Each winner receives $1,000, a certificate designed by artist Annie Lee and their picture posted on BlackAmericaWeb.com along with a short audio clip. Nominees get a Hardest Working Award certificate.
Joyner will present his Hardest Working Award Fridays beginning in late June. “I want listeners to nominate someone, some place or some group, and every week I’m going to pay tribute to them because they deserve it,” he said.
