National Liberty Museum
Young Heroes Award
This annual award, sponsored by TD Bank, recognizes young people who have championed liberty through their actions.
Acting on the principle that liberty is a right every person and community should have, the Young Heroes Award recognizes young people who have identified areas where liberty is lacking, and have taken action to make positive social change in their schools and communities. We are looking for young people who have championed liberty through civic engagement, conflict resolution, promoting diversity and school or community leadership.
All winners receive recognition at an awards ceremony at the Museum, a certificate of recognition, medallion and gifts and a plaque featuring their story in the Museum’s Young Heroes Exhibit. One winner is named the President’s Honor Winner and receives a $1000 grand prize.
The deadline to submit a nomination for the 2015 Awards is June 30.
