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.”
The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes is an annual award that honors outstanding young leaders who have made a significant positive difference to people and our planet. Each year, the Barron Prize honors twenty-five young people nationwide, selecting ten as winners of a $2500 scholarship. Half of the winners have focused on helping their communities and fellow human beings; half have focused on protecting the health and sustainability of the environment.
