The Rhode Island Humanist of the Year award was established in 2013 to recognize a Rhode Island area resident who has made a significant contribution to the advancement of humanist values in the state through the force of ideas and action.
Nominations are accepted from HRI members. The Awards Committee, with the approval of the Board, makes the selection. A plate bearing an inscription is awarded at the December monthly meeting.
