"Responsibility for Tomorrow...Today"

The winners of the Human Rights Day Poster contest were announced at the December 7, 2007 Human Rights Day conference. Contestants were challenged to represent in art form what they thought the Human Rights Day theme quote from Marie Curie means in our society today:

"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individual. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."

First, second, and third prizes were awarded in four categories.
