Reebok Human Rights Award



REEBOK HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD
2005 Nomination Application

Purpose

Established in 1988, the Reebok Human Rights Award honors young people
from the United States and around the world who have made significant
contributions to the cause of human rights, often against great odds.

The purpose of the Award is to shine a positive, international light on
the awardees and to support their work in human rights.  A $50,000 grant
is given to further the work of each Award recipient.


Eligibility

Award candidates must be 30 years of age or younger on December 31, 2004.  
Award candidates cannot advocate violence or belong to an organization
that advocates violence.  Award candidates must be working on an issue
that directly relates to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human
Rights.  Women and men of all races, ethnic groups, nationalities and
religions are eligible.


Guidelines

The Reebok Human Rights Award is given to an individual, based on that
individual's personal achievement and commitment.  It is not given to
groups of people, organizations, or as a memorial award to people who have
died.

Letters of recommendation should highlight why the individual is being
recommended for the award, how long the nominator has been aware of the
individual's contributions and any special obstacles overcome by the
candidate.  Personal information on family background and the history of
how the candidate began doing human rights work is also encouraged.

Nominators must specify whether the Award candidate has received or is
currently nominated for other human rights awards.

A complete nomination includes an application form, a letter of
nomination, three additional letters of support, proof of age and any
additional items that describe the candidate's work.  It is possible for
these items to be sent separately (please note on the application form
what items are being sent separately).

Nominations must be received by May 31, 2004.
