Human Rights Day Poster Contest Winners (2006)
All Minnesota students in grades kindergarten through senior high school were eligible to compete in the 2006 Human Rights Day Poster Contest. Contestants were asked to present in art form what they think the Human Rights Day theme quote from Eleanor Roosevelt means in our society today. Students competed in four grade level categories -- Grades K-2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12 -- with judging based on clarity of message, originality, creativity, and neatness.
The contest was sponsored by a collaborative of Minnesota human rights organizations including the League of Minnesota Human Rights Commissions, Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights, Advocating Change Together, Tolerance Minnesota, the University of Minnesota Human Rights Center, "This is My Home," and the Minnesota Department of Human Rights.
