The Human Rights Education - Joanne Mackie Award is directed to providing financial support to home economics teachers for the pursuit of student learning about local and global human rights issues. This award can be used to build student knowledge about local and global citizenry in the context of home economics related projects. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) can serve as an inspiration and guidepost for the development of a project for the home economics classroom. (https://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights/) Canadian middle or secondary school home economics/human ecology/family studies educators are encouraged to apply.
Joanne Mackie was a strong advocate for Home Economics/Family Studies education and leadership. She was a dedicated member and volunteer for the Ontario Family Studies Home Economics Educators' Association (OFSHEEA) and travelled to meetings around the world representing Canada and OFSHEEAA. Additionally, Joanne assisted with the development of home economics programs in Swaziland (now Eswatini) and worked with the Hamilton Home Economics Association in Tanzania .
