The highlight of the Breakfast is the presentation of Outstanding Young Person Awards to nearly 200 middle and high school students of color in Dane County for their academic achievement, extracurricular involvement, and service to the community.

The Martin Luther King Scholarships are presented to exceptional high school seniors. The Breakfast is open to the public and is one of the oldest and most well-attended family observations of the King Holiday in Wisconsin.
