Peace First is a national nonprofit organization that exists to create the next generation of peacemakers. Peace First is catalyzing to celebrate young people and their potential to create positive change around them. The Peace First Prize will introduce youth peacemaking as a powerful concept to Americans across the country, engaging them as nominees, nominators, educators and parents. Campus Compact is one of Peace First’s 13 nonprofit partners, we invite you join us!

About the Prize

Modeled as a “Nobel Peace Prize” for youth, the Peace First Prize will celebrate small, courageous and transformative acts of peacemaking by young people and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. The Prize will showcase young people between the ages of 8-22 who have confronted injustice, crossed lines of difference, and had the courage and compassion to create lasting change.

Five Prize winners will each receive a $50,000 Peace First Fellowship over two years to continue their peacemaking work. The fellowship includes a customized curriculum, individual coaching, networking, and mentoring from prominent business and community leaders.

Nominations can be made online; the application deadline is April 12, 2013.
