Every year since 2003, Action For Nature (AFN), a U.S.-based non-profit, has sought to recognize and reward young people who are taking action to solve the world’s tough environmental problems. We are proud to honor the work of young people between the ages of 8 and 16 all over the globe who have done creative environmental projects with a cash prize, certificate of achievement, and public recognition.
Winners receive a cash prize of up to $500, a special certificate of achievement, public recognition on our website and in the media, as well as exclusive access to our Eco-Hero Alumni Facebook Group. Please read the Application Guidelines to see if you are eligible to apply to become a Young Eco-Hero. If you or someone you know is eligible, encourage them to apply.
