Which person or organisation do you think deserves to be honoured with the children's own award for outstanding contributions to the rights of the child? Nominate your candidate for the World’s Children's Prize for the Rights of the Child.
The World’s Children’s Prize is awarded for outstanding contributions for the rights of the child. Read more about our Laureates before you fill out the nomination form. Please include the names of any organisations that support your nomination.
The longer the period and/or the harder the circumstances under which your candidate has been fighting for the rights of the child, the more likely that they will be picked as a World’s Children’s Prize candidate.
Individuals (children and adults) or organisations can be nominated. Self-nominations will not be accepted.
You can also send your nomination by email. Download the nomination form here and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All nominations are carefully screened by World’s Children’s Prize Foundation. Those that qualify are submitted to the WCP Children’s Jury. The Jury annually select three final prize candidates. Finally, The World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child* is awarded by the millions of voting children participating in the WCP program and the annual Global Vote. The remaining two candidates receive the World’s Children’s Honorary Award.
Nominations can be made at any time.
*Please note that the WCP voting rules state that a Prize candidate cannot be elected to receive the World's Children's Prize for the Rights of the Child if s/he/the organization candidate receives the majority of the votes because of the voting results in his/her/their home country, but did not receive the majority of all votes from the rest of the world.
