14th Annual Human Rights Hero Awards

2016 Recipients

The Amherst Human Rights Commission’s primary purpose is to promote a community of mutual respect and to honor the diversity of our community.  We strive to promote attitudes of compassion and concern for our neighbors. To encourage these values in Amherst, we have initiated the Human Rights Youth Heroism Awards, an annual celebration of Amherst area youth.  2019 represents the fourteenth year of these awards!  It is the Commission’s intent to identify and celebrate youth who have shown a special gift from the heart or an ability to love and care for one another.  We are looking for young people who have demonstrated acts of kindness, unselfishness, social courage and/or community service within their families, their schools, or the 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.  The Human Rights Commission will celebrate this year’s Heroes at its annual community picnic in June at the Mill River Recreation Area.

Submit your nominations here.

Nominations may be submitted through May 17, 2019

For questions please contact Jennifer Moyston at 413-259-3002
