World of Children Global Awards Program Announces Call for Nominations
Deadline: June 9, 2006
Each year the World of Children (<a href="http://www.worldofchildren.org/">http://www.worldofchildren.org/</a>) presents awards to ordinary individuals worldwide who have done extraordinary good on behalf of the health, education, and well-being of children.
Awards are given in three categories: the World of Children Health Award, an award of $50,000 for those providing services in the fields of health, medicine, and pediatric sciences; the World of Children Humanitarian Award, an award of $50,000 for education and social and humanitarian services; and the Founder’s Award, a $15,000 award for a young person under the age of 21 who has provided exceptional services/support to other children.
The program requires that the nominee has full knowledge that he or she is being nominated. Self-nominations are welcome. The nominee also must be available in November 2006 to participate in the World of Children awards event held in New York City. (Travel and accommodations expenses provided.) A candidate may be nominated for one award only. The awards are not given posthumously, nor are they granted to organizations. The stipends awarded must go to a sustainable organization.
Visit the World of Children Web site for complete program information and nomination procedures.
