Upstander C.A.R.E. Awards
(Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, Empathy)
Awards 2021 Application Form
The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights welcomes applications for its 2021 Upstander C.A.R.E. (Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, Empathy) Awards. Each year Idaho youth in Grades 7-12 are honored with cash prizes up to $1,500 for taking action to create positive change in their communities.
These young individuals will be honored as upstanders – those who recognize a wrong and take action to make it right. While being an upstander is everyone’s responsibility, each winner’s achievement(s) will display a remarkable choice to combat intolerance, prejudice and injustice and make a constructive contribution(s) in reshaping his/her world.
Emphasis will be given to accomplishment(s) that exhibit sustainable acts of compassion, acceptance, respect and empathy toward others. The Wassmuth Center award strives to encourage young activists and inspires each of us to become an advocate for change.
Completed application packages are due on or before April 16, 2021.
