Since 2012, OKUHRA has awarded Oklahoma human rights activists for their contributions at a ceremony held in conjunction with International Human Rights Day (Dec. 10).

Anyone, whether a member of OKUHRA or not, can nominate someone for this award. Each person may nominate only one person for the yearly OKUHRA Award. The OKUHRA award committee reviews those nominations and selects the awardees.

The deadline for nomination is Nov. 10. Submissions received after that date will be considered in the following year’s award cycle.
