District 16 Human Rights Committee

(Image: 2016 Human Rights Poster Scholarship Winner)

Members of the Human Rights Committee are interested in both professional development about human rights cases as well as creating an opportunity for teachers and students to work creatively on human rights topics. Meetings occur every other month at the district office and cover local, national, and global human rights issues as well as provide resources for teaching staff within the field of human rights. The Human Rights Committee also works very closely with the D16 GSMA group.

2019 will be the fourth year that the D16 Human Rights Committee will be offering bursaries to graduating students.  Please see the poster and application form below for the HR Bursaries and the HR Poster Competition.
