To participate in the annual Grades 6-12 Human Rights Poetry Contest, students must reflect on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article #1 in an original work of poetry.
Article #1: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.”
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on December 10, 1948 as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and nations. It sets, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages. (www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/)
The Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial is one of the few places in the world in which the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is publicly displayed in its entirety.
