  • Scholarship Description
  • The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes honors outstanding young leaders who have made a significant positive difference to people and our planet. Their leadership and courage make them true heroes - and inspirations to us all.

    Each year, the Barron Prize honors 25 winners nationwide. Half of the winners have focused on helping their communities and fellow beings and the other half have focused on protecting the health and sustainability of the environment. Nominations are made by adults who have solid knowledge of the nominee and his or her work, but who are not related to the nominee. This could include teachers, librarians, civic or religious leaders, among others.

    The Barron Prize relies on thoughtful adults to identify and nominate children from the diverse communities in which they live. The Prize accepts nominations on an annual basis and distributes $2,500 awards every fall. To nominate a young person, the adult nominator must submit a fully completed nomination packet and references form.

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
