“We have a right to food, housing, clothing, and medical care.” This is Article 25 in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Here in Tompkins County, the Dorothy Cotton Institute is partnering with the Office of Human Rights to co-sponsor the Human Rights Arts Competition, open to all K-12 students in Tompkins County, whether in public school, private school, charter school, Montessori, or home-schooled.
Teachers and students are encouraged to explore the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to submit students’ artwork (visual, poetry or short film) expressing their understanding of one or more of the 30 articles of the UDHR. The deadline is Nov. 20, 2015.
