The Peace First Prize recognizes young people who have confronted injustice, crossed lines of difference, and had the courage and compassion to create lasting change in their schools and communities. Our goal is to share this daring work far and wide, invest in their leadership, and inspire others to make peacemaking a part of their daily lives. Most importantly we want to tell the stories of our nominees – incredible stories of young people leading change. 5-10 Prize winners will each receive a $25,000 Peace First Fellowship over two years to continue their peacemaking work. Through mentoring and coaching, the Peace First Fellowship is a real investment in young people’s ability to take their peacemaking to the next level of action and impact. But more than just recognizing a few individuals, we want to tell the thousands of stories about how young people are changing the world. Applications open on January 6, 2014.
