On Saturday, August 21, Youth for Human Rights International – Seattle Chapter, sponsored by the Church of Scientology in Shoreline, was given the Best of Parade Float award for their entry in the annual Celebrate Shoreline event.

The blue and white float built by Tony Sciumbato and Jet Holzwarth featured the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Celebrate Shoreline 2010 theme: "Bridging families, cultures and communities."

Members of the group passed out booklets containing a youth version of all 30 articles contained in the Universal Declaration as well as cookies with quotes from the Declaration along the parade route.

The song “United” played from the award-winning DVD “United” and youth carried signs noting “The right to education,” “Don’t discriminate,” “Freedom of thought,” and other precepts from the Declaration.

Youth for Human Rights International believes that human rights begin with each one of us insisting they be used everywhere – in every community. The group provides free educational materials and can be reached at their website for more information.
