In celebration of the 13th annual McDonald’s 365Black Awards, the company will honor personalities and everyday heroes who make positive contributions to the community.

Additionally, 13-year-old Donovan Smith of Albuquerque, NM and 16-year-old Lauren Seroyer of Lawrenceville, GA, will be recognized alongside this lineup with McDonald’s 365Black Community Choice Youth Award, a category designed for consumers to nominate exceptional teens striving to better their community. Hosted by actor Lance Gross and actress Amber Riley, the awards show will be held Friday, July 1, 2016, during the 22nd annual ESSENCE Festival™ presented by Coca Cola® in New Orleans.
