Call to nominations International Children's Peace Prize 2018
The nomination process for the International Children’s Peace Prize 2018 has started! KidsRights calls upon individuals and organizations across the globe to nominate eligible children.
Every year, KidsRights Foundation awards this prestigious prize to a brave boy or girl, regardless of race, place of birth or social standing, who has demonstrated the skill and determination necessary to personally improve the rights of children. These children deserve worldwide recognition for their work. Will you help us find this year’s winner?
Please use the attached form to nominate a child and send it in to nominations@childrenspeaceprize.org.
Or share this email with people within your network who may know someone they would like to see nominated. The deadline for entries is March 1st 2018.
Who can be nominated?
• A boy or girl above 12 and under 18 years of age (the child should not be older than 17 years by the time of the nomination deadline);
• From anywhere in the world;
• The child must have a clear history of standing up and fighting for his/her own rights and/or the rights of other children. It is important that the child has an active approach in accomplishing this goal, which has led to a concrete result;
• The child agrees to being nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize.
The nomination form and the full list of criteria can be found on the website of the International Children’s Peace Prize: www.childrenspeaceprize.org
We kindly ask the parents/guardians of the nominated child to give authorization to use the information shared in the nomination form, as well as the photograph(s) of the nominated child for our global online campaign. The powerful messages of all the nominees will be posted on our website. You can find the stories of the nominees from 2017 here.
