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 1000 primary school students across Australia. In 2017, the Award expanded nationally for the first time with students from all states and territories eligible for nomination.

Who can nominate a student?

Teachers, principals, parents and members of the community are all encouraged to nominate.

Who should you nominate?

Any Year 6 student who embodies the values of compassion, integrity and kindnessBe inspired by our 2017 Junior Ambassadors, James Larsson, Josh Hancock, Tilda Meggitt, Abigail Hughes, Mary Nash, Kitean Aitken, Che Buckley and Sophie Harris.

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!
