Muhammad Ali recognized a former president, Grammy winners and young adults for their roles in fighting for humanitarian causes.
Former President Jimmy Carter received a lifetime achievement award, and his son Chip accepted the award on his father's behalf.
Singers Christina Aguilera and Michael Bolton were other award winners.
Ali's wife, Lonnie, says the awards are a culmination of her husband's efforts to promote social causes.
Six young adults and teenagers from around the world were being recognized for exemplifying core principles espoused by Ali. Winners include a Ugandan who formed an anti-poverty organization and an American teenager who started a foundation to provide shoes to homeless children.
