The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes, celebrates outstanding young leaders. Each year the Barron Prize honors 25 inspiring young people who have made a significant positive difference.
The Barron Prize was founded on the premise that young people need real, heroic role models who have made a meaningful difference in the world. The goal of the Barron Prize is to celebrate such heroic young people-and to inspire others to do their part.
As prize founder T.A. Barron explains, “Nothing is more inspiring than stories about heroic people who have truly made a difference to the world. And we need our heroes today more than ever. Not celebrities, but heroes-people whose character can inspire us all. That is the purpose of the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes: to share positive examples of heroism with as many young people as possible.”
Each year, the Barron Prize honors 25 inspiring, public-spirited young people chosen from hundreds of applicants from across North America. Many have focused on helping their communities and fellow beings; many others have focused on protecting the health and sustainability of the environment.
