Dr. Mykhailo Shkilnyk (1891–1972), “This prize is to honor special people for their ability to light the light of justice in the dark crevices of the human soul and to point the way to a more human society. My father never sought recognition for his dedicated service in the name of justice. His life is a vivid example of moral leadership. That is exactly why I decided to establish the prize 'Light of Justice,'” noted Anastasia Shkilnyk.
