The Humanitarian Aid Relief Trus (HART) Prize aims to engage young people (11 to 25 years old) in global issues by encouraging them to create written or creative pieces from conducting independent research.
There are two competitions: the essay competition and the creative competition. Prizes include tea in the House of Lords with Baroness Cox. The essay competition is designed for entrants to critically discuss the political, humanitarian and human rights issues in a carefully constructed essay, whereas the creative competition is open to any artistic medium such as poetry, artwork or sculpture, both addressing the human rights issues and humanitarian situations in any of the countries which HART works.
