SOPHE OPEN SOCIETY AWARD
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Nomination Submissions Must Be Postmarked By: Sunday, July 31, 2005
SOPHE will inaugurate the Open Society Award at SOPHE's 56th Annual
November 5th at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans, LA.
This new award seeks to recognize an individual or group who embodies and
promotes an Open Society, through research, practice, and/or teaching.
Award recipients will receive a $250 cash prize and one year SOPHE
membership (for non-member recipients).
An open society is one where justice is the same for every man
[sic] (and woman); where dissent is taken seriously as an index of
something wrong or something needed; where diversity is respected; where
pressure groups cannot stifle and control the will of the majority or
castigate the individual; where education brings upward mobility to all;
where the best of health care is available to all; where poverty is a
community disgrace not an individual's weakness; where greed for
possessions and success is replaced by inner fires for excellence and
honor; where desires for power over men (and women) become satisfactions
with the use of power for men (and women).
