Amie B., a Year 10 art scholar, has been Highly Commended by the Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) for her entry into the Creative section of the HART Prize for Human Rights in the ‘intermediate age category:15yrs-18yrs old’. She was selected, along with a handful of other students, from well over 200 entries from 45 different school in the UK and abroad for this prestigious prize. We are very proud of Amie’s work and her artistry. To enter the Creative category of the Prize, Amie was required to produce a creative piece of work about the human rights or humanitarian situation in any of the countries in which HART works (Burma, Nagorno-Karabakh, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Nigeria and Timor-Leste). 

The HART prize for Human Rights aims to: 

  • Raise awareness of conflict, poverty and human rights abuses amongst young people in the UK, particularly situations which are underrepresented in the mainstream media 

  • Encourage young people to examine and engage critically with human rights issues by conducting independent research, and producing written or creative pieces 

  • Invite new voices to contribute to HART’s communications
