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.
