[ARCHIVED] Human Rights Youth Heroism Awards Nominations


The Amherst Human Rights Commission has as its prime purpose to promote a community of mutual respect and to honor our diversity. For the twelfth year, we offer the Human Rights Youth Heroism Awards, an annual celebration of Amherst-area youth. These awards celebrate local youth who demonstrate acts of kindness, unselfishness, social courage and/or community service within their families, schools or community. Please nominate a young person or group you have observed displaying these acts in the past year. We recognize youth who live in or attend any school in town.

Nominations may be submitted through May 15, 2017, to or to the Human Rights Commission c/o Deborah Radway, Amherst Town Hall, 4 Boltwood Ave., Amherst MA 01002. 

The Human Rights Commission will celebrate this year’s Heroes at its annual community picnic on June 17 at Mill River Recreation Area. Please join us!
