- Scholarship Description
Action For Nature (AFN), a non-profit organization, created the International Young Eco-Hero Awards to recognize and reward the successful individual environmental initiatives of young people ages 8 to 16. AFN encourages young people around the world to carry out individual environmental action projects. We believe that young people can have a positive impact on the environment and are vital in changing the way we live on our planet.
Winners will receive: public recognition and a media press release; a certificate of achievement for outstanding efforts to help protect and preserve the environment; exclusive access to the Eco-Hero Alumni Facebook Group; and a cash prize up to $500.
Just as importantly, winners will serve as role models for other young people by demonstrating that each individual can make a difference. Preference is given to projects that are ongoing or that occurred over 2+ years.
