Nominate students who create positive impacts

The Humanity Award recognizes students from Primary 3 to Primary 6 or aged 8 to 12 who lend a helping hand and give back to the community. The Award recognizes compassionate students who put thoughts into positive actions and inspired our community to do more good. 


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

The Humanity Award recognises Primary students who follow in Fred’s footsteps by making a positive difference in the community.

How can schools or parents nominate students for The Humanity Award? 
The Award welcomes all P3 to P6 students (8 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. Please provide information or images (if appropriate), to support the submission. 

What are the award criterias?
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:HK24-HA-Icon-Infographic-1.png
