About The Humanity Award

Founder of The Fred Hollows Foundation, Professor Fred Hollows, dedicated his life to helping and empowering others to help themselves and restoring sight to some of the world’s poorest people.
I believe the basic attribute of mankind is to look after each other.
- Professor Fred Hollows, Founder of The Fred Hollows Foundation

How can schools or parents nominate students for The Humanity Award? 
The Award welcomes all P4 to P6 students (9 to 12 years of age) to enter. We welcome both individual and group nominations – all nominations will be assessed together.

School principals, teachers, social workers, parents and guardians are encouraged to nominate more than one student or student group.

Each nomination should be accompanied by a submission showing how the student/s made a positive contribution to the community over the past year. Please provide information or images (if appropriate), to support the submission. 

What are the award criteria?
Students should be able to demonstrate one positive action they have done for the community in the past year. The student’s actions should have brought positive impacts for society and demonstrated at least one of the values, upheld by our founder Professor Fred Hollows:

- Action oriented
- Show compassion, integrity and kindness
- Empowerment: Help people to help themselves
- Collaborate with others to bring about change 
What do Humanity Award participants receive?
Five Humanity Award Ambassadors will each receive a medal. 

Students with inspiring actions will be named as Students of Merit. 

All participants will receive a Fred Hollows Humanity Award Certificate to recognise their positive impacts. 

All participants will automatically join the Humanity Award Alumni – a global circle of young people who give back to the community.
