Last year America’s Promise partnered with the Peace First Prize for the first time with great results. This year, we want to aim even higher and to have even more of our youth represented. The goal is volume: more great stories, including smaller scale projects and initiatives. The Prize will continue to be a high-profile campaign and a great opportunity for Alliance partners, and the amazing young people in its network, to be spotlighted.To view winners from the inaugural year, please click here. They are impressive and inspiring leaders we can all be proud of!

Nominations will be accepted through March 17. Please get involved and help us support this partnership! We need your help in spreading the word about the Peace First Prize broadly. Check out for additional information.
