Jamala Rogers Young Visionary Award

Meet Past Visionaries

 

The Jamala Rogers Young Visionary Award serves to recognize and support young people who work for or want to work for racial justice, equality and human rights. Applicants must be between the ages of 17-26 years old and reside in the St. Louis metropolitan area (this includes the bi-state region). They are responding to society’s social, political and economic issues. The award is named after Jamala Rogers, a long-time respected community leader, who became active in social justice movements as a teen. She has inspired thousands of young people to use their time, talents and skills to transform their lives and their communities in meaningful ways. (Read more.)

Annual Human Rights Student Essay Contest

Every year the St. Louis Coalition for Human Rights selects an essay theme based upon the issues of the day and connects it with one of the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The essay contest encourages middle and high school students to use a human rights lens as a tool to express themselves about issues that impact them. There are always helpful questions to assist students in thinking about the topic.

The deadline for essays is always October 31. There are cash prizes for winners for the top winners.
