Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes Seeks Nominations for 2006 Awards

The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes (www.barronprize.org) honors young people between the ages of 8 and 18 who have shown leadership and courage in public service to people and our planet. Each year, ten national winners each receive $2,000 to support their service work or higher education. Winners must have organized and led a truly extraordinary service activity that has clearly benefited other people, our fellow creatures, or the planet we share. The winner’s service activity must have been initiated and motivated primarily by the winner him or herself. Winners must have participated in their heroic work within the twelve months prior to the nomination deadline of April 30, and must be legal residents of the United States or Canada. Nominations can be made by responsible adults who have solid knowledge of a young person’s heroic activities and who are not related to the nominee. For complete program information and to nominate a young person, visit the Barron Prize Web site. Deadline: April 30, 2006.
