Fred Hollows used to say that real humanity is shown when we care for others. The Fred Hollows Foundation is keeping his vision alive through an Award to recognise Year 6 students who show care and compassion for others.

The Humanity Award is a fantastic opportunity to recognise students outside the sporting and academic realm, and is launching in Tasmania after successfully running in the Australian Capital Territory since 2012 and launching in New South Wales last year.

Principals, Teachers and parents can nominate a Year 6 student at hollows.org/humanityaward Nominations will open on July 19 and close Sunday 21 August.

All nominees will be recognised by Gabi Hollows and Tasmanian State Premier Will Hodgman at a presentation ceremony, where a state Junior Ambassador to The Fred Hollows Foundation will also be announced.

Fred was an ordinary person with a big dream. You never know, we may just find the next Fred Hollows in a Tasmania classroom, says Gabi Hollows.
