About

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. The International Children’s Peace Prize is a sign of recognition for the young winner. He or she receives the statuette ‘Nkosi’, which shows how a child sets the world in motion. The winner also receives 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. Winning the International Children’s Peace Prize puts your changemaker in news headlines around the world. Last year, the winners’ message reached more than 1.6 billion people!

Nominate your changemaking candidate now! Last year we received 137 nominations from 56 countries around the world. We are looking for young changemakers above 12 years and under 18 years of age around the world.
