Board on Children, Youth, and Families Seeks Nominations for William T. Grant Foundation Youth Development Prize
Deadline: October 1, 2002

The Board on Children, Youth, and Families, a joint initiative of the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, seeks nominations for the William T. Grant Foundation Youth Development Prize, which will recognize high-quality, evidence-based collaborative efforts that generate significant advances in knowledge while increasing the opportunities for young people to move successfully through adolescence with ample support and care. The recipient(s) of the prize will receive a cash award of $100,000 and will be the guest(s) of honor at an award dinner at the National Academy of Sciences.

The prize will be awarded to either local collaborations with national promise or large-scale efforts with proven efficacy. Prize recipients will be selected on two principal criteria: two to five individual(s) and/or organization(s) who have collaborated with one another and demonstrated the sharing of resources, power, and control to conceptualize, develop, implement, and evaluate a program(s) that enables youth to thrive; and evidence that the collaboration has ongoing scientific involvement and assessment, especially of results. Additional selection criteria include programs that demonstrate an impact on youth anywhere in the 8-24 age range; have sustained the collaboration for five years or more; demonstrate evidence that the program model has the potential for being replicated and/or applied more broadly; provide evidence of collaboration between several disciplines/sectors, such as health, community service, law, education, media, etc.; and are theory-driven and/or evidence-based.

Organizations, associations, groups, and individuals working in the field of youth development are invited to submit nominations. There are no restrictions on who may nominate candidates; however, (1) self-nominated entries will not be accepted, and (2) nominees are restricted to U.S.-based programs.
