Rising Leader Awards

Each year we recognize students from our local community who exhibits a strong interest and a commitment to advancing the cause of human rights and social justice.

The nominations come from individuals and organizations who have observed the student’s work and the impact it has had on the community. Recipients receive a $500 scholarship and the gift of a book related to social justice.
