What is the Fred Hollows Humanity Award?
The Award recognises Year 6 students who follow in Fred’s footsteps by making a positive difference in their community. It celebrates students who show compassion, integrity and kindness in their everyday lives, just as Fred did.
Since 2012, the Award has recognised more than 750 primary school students across the ACT, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania. This year, the Award will expand nationally with students from all states and territories eligible for nomination!
When do 2017 nominations open and close?
Nominations open Monday 24 July and close Sunday 10 September 2017.
Who can nominate a student?
Teachers, principals, parents and members of the community are all encouraged to nominate a student via the online form available from 24 July.
Who should you nominate?
Any Year 6 student who embodies the values of compassion, integrity and kindness. Be inspired by our 2016 Junior Ambassadors, Ross Kelly, Logan Atkinson, Ella Bater and Ethan Bellman.
What do award recipients receive?
All nominees will receive a certificate and select nominees will be recognised at a presentation ceremony in their state in Term 4 where a Junior Ambassador will also be announced.
Thanks to our charity partner Specsavers, these state Junior Ambassadors will extend their humanity by allocating $5000 each to a Fred Hollows Foundation program of their choice to help us end avoidable blindness!
