Children’s Rights Award: “Hear my Story, know my rights” Special Anniversary Edition 2019

2019 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 40th of Defence for Children International (DCI). On this occasion, we would like to celebrate with children! 

The objective of the Children’s Rights Award 2019 is to foster children’s participation and to include the whole DCI Movement in doing so. This edition calls upon the participation of all children between ages of 12-17 years in all the countries in which DCI is present. This will also include the involvement of National Sections who will be participating in the award in partnership with the DCI International Secretariat in Geneva. Through this DCI Award process DCI aims to highlight how children’s rights are perceived by those who are most directly concerned – children themselves.  More than that, DCI wishes to use the process at the National level to interact with children in their communities to encourage a better understanding of their rights enshrined in UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, more specifically the articles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child on which DCI focuses their work. Given that 2019 is also the 30th anniversary of this UN Convention, there will be also celebrations at the National level, with which the Award may be associated. The objective is to include as many children as possible through a wide participation of the DCI Movement worldwide in the competition entitled: HEAR MY STORY, KNOW MY RIGHTS.

An International Jury composed by Ms Anne Grandjean, Human Rights Specialist (UNICEF), Mr Nigel Cantwell, Founder of DCI and Member of the DCI Advisory Committee, Ms Christine Cornwell, Member of the DCI Advisory Committee and Executive and Representative of the Forum on Child Policy in Africa (ACPF) in Geneva, Mr Philip Jaffé, Member of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and Mr Alexandre Kamarotos, Executive Director of DCI-International Secretariat were requested to select a first, second and third award-winner from category A (electronic creations) and B (craft creations).
