On the occasion of the International Human Rights Day, celebrated on the 10th of December, the European Foundation of Human Rights decided to organise a creative art competition for 5th to 12th grade students. The students were encouraged to create an artwork on one of the selected topics related to human rights.
The topic chosen for students from 5th to 8th grade was: “We are all different, but we are all equal”. Older students (9th to 12th grade) prepared an artwork on the topic: “Stand up for someone’s rights”.
Among 29 artworks sent to the headquarters of EFHR, the committee chose 3 winners in each category. A special prize was awarded to the author of the artwork with the biggest number of “likes” on Facebook.
All submitted artworks are available here.
The winners in the category of 5th to 8th grade are:
- Dominyka Jakutowicz, 8th grade, Elementary School in Kyviskes;
