    AWARD RECOGNITION

    Idaho Human Rights Educator-of-the-Year

    The Wassmuth Center’s education work reflects the initial charter that guided the creation of the Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial – the most effective way to foster positive, lasting social change is to prepare youth to be responsible stewards of human rights.  During the Celebration, we are excited each year to recognize the impact that an Idaho educator has in leading that charge in his/her classroom.
