A worldwide quest is on for the next six weeks to find the person – or group – that emulates Scotland’s national Bard through the desire, dedication and will to make a difference and effect social change.
The quest for nominations for the Robert Burns Humanitarian Award 2014 – one of the world’s most prestigious humanitarian accolades – will continue until Friday, November 1.
The Robert Burns Humanitarian Award recognises a group or individual who has saved, improved or enriched the lives of others or society as a whole, through personal self-sacrifice, selfless service or ‘hands on’ charitable work.
Winners receive the equivalent of 1759 guineas – a sum which signifies the year of the Bard’s birth and the coinage then in circulation – as well as a specially commissioned award handcrafted in Scotland.
