Author T.A. Barron believes that today’s youth can make a difference in the world. To inspire young people, he created the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes. Each year, the Barron Prize honours twenty-five outstanding young leaders ages 8 to 18 in the US and Canada who have made a significant positive difference to people and our planet.
The top 15 winners each receive a $10,000 cash award to support their service work or higher education.
Every year the application process opens in January with a deadline of April 15th, with winners announced in September.
