The HART Prize for Human Rights is a competition for young people who are interested in global issues.
The HART prize for Human Rights aims to:
- Raise awareness of conflict, poverty and human rights abuses amongst young people in the UK, particularly situations which are underrepresented in the mainstream media
- Encourage young people to examine and engage critically with human rights issues by conducting independent research, and producing written or creative pieces
- Invite new voices to contribute to HART’s communications.
There are two competitions running:
- Creative competition: The challenge is to produce a creative piece of work about the human rights or humanitarian situation in any of the countries in which HART works.
- Essay competition: Our essay competition encourages young people to research and write essays on a topic of their choice as long as it is related to one of the eight countries where HART works.
We are excited to announce the dates for the upcoming competition.
- We will open applications on the 1st November 2018
- The deadline is the 4th March 2019
- Prize-giving and Exhibition (winners announced) on the 25th March 2019
We now have three age categories:
- Junior: Year 7 to Year 11
- Intermediate: Year 12 and Year 13
- Advanced: Aged between 19 and 25
