  Wanted: kids who stand up for their rights
Updated 24 September 2002, 14.53
Children who stand up for their moral rights will be awarded
Children who've stood up for what's right are being given their own special awards.

The Anne Frank Awards for Moral Courage are for school children who've been "morally" brave, rather than physically brave.

Young people could be nominated if they've stood up to bullies, or made friends with a really unpopular kid school, for example.

Nominations

The awards are named after Jewish heroine Anne Frank
The awards are named after Anne Frank, a Jewish girl who hid from the Nazis with her family in cramped conditions during World War II.

She was eventually captured and she died in a Nazi concentration camp.

A spokeswoman for the awards said there wouldn't be any nominations for children who've rescued someone from a burning building.

"It's really to help young people to recognise what moral courage is, rather than physical bravery. To teach them the difference between right and wrong."

Celebrity

There'll be seven categories, including youth awards, one award for teachers, one international award, one community award, one celebrity award and one nominator's award.

The winners will be announced on 12 June next year.

To find out more about nominations, go to the Anne Frank Trust website link on the right of this page.
