The Fred Hollows Humanity Awards are a global movement created to recognise passionate children striving to make the world around them better.
The next Fred Hollows could be a little girl, a little boy, a little miracle worker! A child with the compassion, integrity and kindness to walk in Fred’s shoes.
Nominations are now closed for the 2023 Humanity Awards.
Harry was nominated by his Principal, Hannah Moorhouse for his passion towards his surroundings and taking care of the people and environment around him. Principal Moorhouse said "Harry demonstrates compassion, integrity and kindness".
Harry lives in a very rural and isolated spot near the Whinray Reserve - an ecological reserve for Kiwi that reach 1kg to be released in. Harry recently helped release Kiwi hatchlings with the Department of Conservation. During Conservation Week Harry initiated a restoration of pathways in another bush reserve next to his school.
Madison was nominated by Deputy Head of Saint Francis Xavier Catholic School, Jennie Dean for her kindness, support, and big picture future thinking.
Aneke Kilbride from Paekākāriki School in Kapiti Coast was nominated by her Principal, Julia Bevin, for courageously taking on the local District Council about the region’s environmental footprint.
Any Year 5 or 6 student who has demonstrated the values of compassion, integrity and kindness. When selecting your nominees, think of specific examples of when the student has demonstrated these qualities.
Each school can nominate a maximum of two students.
Nominations will open in mid-2024.
Ten nominees will become out finalists, and one of these will be announced as the Junior Ambassador. All ten finalists will receive a goody bag.
All nominees will receive a certificate posted to their school.
Thanks to Specsavers, the Junior Ambassador will extend their humanity by allocating $5000 to a Fred Hollows Foundation NZ Pacific programme of their choice to help us end avoidable blindness!
Prizes will be announced in 2024 but previously, thanks to Office Max, schools that nominated a student went into a draw to win one of four LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 Core Sets.
