The goal of the Kemper Human Rights Education Foundation is to motivate students to contribute to the effort to create a world where everyone’s human rights are realized.
This is the 20th year of the Kemper Human Rights Education Foundation’s human rights essay contests for high school students. One contest is for students in the United States. The other is for students in other countries. Winners of each contest are awarded $1000 and runner ups $500. Never since World War II have human rights been so threatened as they are today by the coronavirus pandemic. Never since the end of the war has it been more important to motivate students to write about ways to right rights.
