World of Children Awards Program Announces Global Call for Nominations
Deadline: May 4, 2007

The World of Children Awards were established to honor individuals or a group of individuals who devote their lives to children. In order to identify such individuals, World of Children annually announces a call for nominations for three award categories — the World of Children Health Award, the World of Children Humanitarian Award, and the Founder’s Award.

The WOC Health Award is for those providing services specifically in the fields of health, medicine, and pediatric sciences. The Humanitarian Award is specifically for education and social and humanitarian services. The Founder’s Award is specifically for a young person under the age of 21 who has provided exceptional services/support to other children.

In November 2007, World of Children will gather the selected honorees together in New York City for an award ceremony and presentation of the two separate $50,000 awards and two $15,000 Founder’s Awards. Honorees are expected to participate in all related events during this time. Travel and accommodations expenses associated with this participation will be arranged and paid for by World of Children.

While the awards are not granted to organizations, the stipends must go to a sustainable organization. Awards are not given posthumously, and self-nominations are welcome.
