The Barron Prize celebrates inspiring, public-spirited young people from across the US and Canada. Established in 2001 by author T.A. Barron, the Barron Prize annually honours 25 outstanding young leaders ages 8 to 18 who have made a significant positive difference to people and the environment. Fifteen top winners each receive $10,000 to support their service work or higher education. Since its inception, the Barron Prize has honoured nearly 450 young heroes and has won the support of Girl Scouts of the USA, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots, and the National Youth Leadership Council, among other organizations.
The prize’s annual application deadline is April 15.
