The International Children’s Peace Prize is awarded annually to a child, anywhere in the world, for his or her dedication to children’s rights.
Winners receive the statuette ‘Nkosi’ (which shows how a child sets the world in motion), a study grant, and a world-wide platform to promote his or her ideals and causes to the benefit of children’s rights. A project fund of €100,000 is invested by KidsRights in projects that are closely connected to the winners’ area of work. Also, the winner is invited to join the KidsRights Youngsters; a unique youth-led advocacy platform of the International Children’s Peace Prize winners, that aims to realise children’s rights, as outlined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
We invite you to nominate a child who has a history of standing up and fighting for the rights of children in his/her country.
The final date for sending in the nomination is April 1st, 2015.
The nomination form and additional information can be found at: www.childrenspeaceprize.org
