K-12 Human Rights Art Contest

2019 Award-winning Art Submissions
“Art is a way for people to express themselves, whether for the sake of imagination or to express ideas. It has been used effectively today, and throughout history, to send public messages about social and political issues. Human rights and the arts go together because of the expressive nature of both subjects. As people, we can stand up for our rights through expression. Due to their ability to create visual interest and to promote solidarity, awareness, and protest, artists and designers play a pivotal role in society by promoting human rights advocacy. Especially in the modern age, where people rely heavily on technology and media, it is important to send messages that work toward creating a society that respects human rights for themselves as well as others.”
The University of Alabama – Institute for Human Rights
2019 Award-winning Art Submissions

To participate in the 20th annual K-12 Human Rights Art Contest, students must reflect on any or all aspects of the Spiral of Injustice and explore these concepts in an original work of art.  Students might consider how one of the following quotes etched in the stone of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial relates to interrupting the Spiral of Injustice.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. (Margaret Mead)
Be the change you want to see in the world. (Mahatma Gandhi)
