1. Ulm Human Rights Prize
The Foundation Human Rights Education Ulm and the Hermann BANTLEON GmbH are jointly awarding the first Ulm Human Rights Award on the occasion of 70 years of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and 100 years of BANTLEON. The patronage is kindly taken over by Mrs. Nina zu Fürstenberg.
The prize is awarded to the most creative and original project. Any students, starting from Grade 7, can take part in this competition. For example, on environmental and climate protection, working conditions, basic food and water, etc. The form of the project has no limits, but it must have be developed independently without the support of a funding organization. In addition, progress should already be recognizable. The prize money will be 5000 Euro for the first place, 3000 Euro for the second place and 1000 Euro for the third place. This serves as an appropriate donation for the project or similar actions. Human rights, especially in times of authoritarian regression, are becoming increasingly important for every individual and a free society. An intensive study of the topic contributes to the general education, the ability to help people in need and the understanding of their own rights. Participation in the competition promotes this debate and provides valuable experience in teamwork and project work.
