Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes invites applications for 2022 awards

The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes celebrates inspiring, public-spirited young people from diverse backgrounds across North America. Each year, the Barron Prize honors 25 outstanding young leaders ages 8 to 18 who have made a significant positive difference to people and the environment.

To that end, awards will be given to those who have demonstrated positive spirit, courage, intelligence, generosity, and high moral purpose; shown initiative, tenacity, and unselfishness in pursuit of their goals; accomplished something with inspirational value—something that could inspire others to make a difference; or do more than survive a difficult personal challenge. Their heroism must have made an impact on the world beyond themselves.

Applicants must have organized and led an extraordinary service activity that has benefited other people or the planet we share. The service activity must have been initiated and motivated primarily by the winner and cannot have been done solely to complete an assignment for school or work.

Recipients will receive an awards package including $10,000 for their higher education or service project, recognition gifts, Young Heroes materials, networking opportunities, and media coverage.

Applicants must be between the ages of 8 and 18 (not yet age 19) and permanent residents of, and currently residing in, the United States or Canada.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes website.

Deadline: April 15, 2022
