Art Contest Promotes Education as a Fundamental Right

​Young Dublin artists were honored June 2 at the first annual Human Rights Art Awards ceremony at the Clarion Hotel Liffey Valley. Winners were selected by a team of artists who wrote personal messages to each student participating in the contest.

The theme of the contest was the Right to Education — one of the 30 rights enshrined in the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Youth competed in four age groups: 4 to 6, 7 to 9, 10 to 15, and 16 to 18. There was also a category for group projects.

The more than 70 pieces of art were submitted.

Speakers included international bestselling author R. J. Ellory.

Founded in 2001, Youth for Human Rights educates youth on the 30 rights of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to inspire them to become advocates for tolerance and peace.
