The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes invites nominations for its 2012 awards. The Barron Prize, founded by author T.A. Barron in honor of his mother, celebrates outstanding young leaders ages 8 to 18.
Each year, the Barron Prize honors inspiring young people who have made a significant positive difference to people and our planet. Ten winners each receive $2,500 to support their service work or higher education. Half of each year’s winners are chosen for their work to protect the environment.
Nomination deadline is April 30. For more information and to nominate, visit http://www.barronprize.org/
