Online Applications Open for the 2023 Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes
“Nothing is more inspiring than stories about heroic people who have truly made a difference to the world,” says T.A. Barron, founder of the Barron Prize. “And we need our heroes today more than ever. Not celebrities but true heroes are people whose character can inspire us all. That is the purpose of the Barron Prize: to share positive examples of heroism with as many young people as possible.”
The Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes announces the launch of its 2023 awards. The online application system is now open. Submissions are due by April 15th and the winners will be announced in September.

The Barron Prize celebrates inspiring, public-spirited young people from across the U.S. and Canada. Established in 2001 by author T. A. Barron, the Barron Prize annually honors 25 outstanding young leaders ages 8 to 18 who have made a significant positive difference to people and the environment.

Fifteen top winners each receive $10,000 to support their service work or higher education.

Over the past two decades, the Barron Prize has honored more than 500 young heroes. They have helped the hungry and the homeless, invented life-saving technologies, protected our oceans and endangered species, and addressed climate change, among myriad other initiatives.

They have raised more than $26 million for their causes and have inspired countless people by their example.

Since its inception, the Barron Prize has awarded more than half a million dollars to young leaders and has won the support of Girl Scouts of the USA, Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots, and Youth Service America, among other organizations.
