The Lincoln M. Alexander Award honours youth who have demonstrated leadership in eliminating racial discrimination in Ontario. The award is named after the late Honourable Lincoln M. Alexander, who was the 24th Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, serving from 1985 – 1991. He was the first member of a minority group to serve as a Lieutenant Governor in any province in Canada. The award was first given in 1993. Three awards are given each year: two student awards and one community award.
- A student award is given to a full-time student who attends a senior high school or who will be entering a postsecondary education program. Students must be nominated by their school.
- A community award is open to anyone who lives in Ontario and is between 16 and 25 years old and who is nominated by a community organization or agency that works in race relations.
