Each year the Stillwater Human Rights Commission accepts nominations for the Stillwater Human Rights Award. Throughout the community, people work to build an environment that promotes fair and equal treatment for everyone. Their special efforts are often unrecognized outside of their own circle of friends, co-workers and neighbors. The intent of the Stillwater Human Rights Award is to recognize worthy individuals, organizations and businesses, and support them in their efforts
