The Tompkins County Office of Human Rights is thrilled to announce the 36th Annual Universal Declaration of Human Rights Arts Competition. Individual, class, or group entries are open for students in grades K-12 in Tompkins County.

Entries will be accepted between October 16 – November 14, 2023.

The Competition seeks to educate and encourage discussion among students regarding the 30 articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948.

Individual, Class, or Group Entries are welcome. The Office of Human Rights encourages small groups (5-6 students working together), and partner (2 students working collaboratively) submissions. Additionally, entire class entries can choose to focus on one or all 30 of the Human Rights Articles.
