Nominations Invited for Reebok Human Rights Award

Deadline: May 31, 2003

Established in 1988, the Reebok Human Rights Award honors young people from the United States and around the world who have made significant contributions to the cause of human rights, often against great odds. The purpose of the award is to draw international attention to the awardees and to support their work in human rights. A $50,000 grant is given to further the work of each award recipient.

Award candidates must be 30 years of age or younger by December 31, 2003. Candidates cannot advocate violence or belong to an organization that advocates violence, and must be working on an issue that directly relates to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Women and men of all races, ethnic groups, nationalities, and religions are eligible. The award is given to an individual, based on that individual’s personal achievement and commitment. It is not given to groups of people, organizations, or as a memorial award to people who have died.

See the program’s Web site for complete nomination guidelines.
