Kellogg’s Child Development Award: a $100,000 award honoring an individual who has made a significant lifetime contribution to children’s futures by greatly improving their opportunities to learn and grow. Contributions in this area include providing shelter, improving living conditions, fostering safety, and working against discrimination, poverty, violence, and child labor.
