The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation invites nominations for the 1999 Hilton Humanitarian Prize. They are seeking an organisation that has made extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering anywhere in the world.
The $1 million (U.S.) prize, the world’s largest humanitarian award, is presented annually to an established nonprofit, charitable or non-governmental organization. The prize is not a grant, based on future goals, but an award for recent and historic accomplishments. An independent international panel of jurors will make the final selection; the award will be announced in September 1999.
Nomination packets are available now. Nominations must be received or postmarked by January 15, 1999. Contact: Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Hilton Humanitarian Prize, 10100 Santa Monica Boulevard, Suite 740, Los Angeles, CA 90067-4011, USA Telephone: (310) 556-4694 Fax: (310) 556-8130 E-mail: Pr***@Hi**************.org
