Nuclear Free World Committee

Youth Peace Award

Are you a student or do you know a student who has been involved in activities for peace and justice to better our world? We are accepting applications and nominations for the Youth Peace Award. Application deadline is April 30. Download the application.

 The Nuclear Free World Committee of the Syracuse Peace Council will again honor high school students in Onondaga County who have shown a devotion to peace, justice, and protecting the environment. We seek students who have engaged in activities-- through school, place of worship, or community—that demonstrate their passion to address underlying causes of war, violence, and injustice. We hope this recognition will help young people to become more aware of the issues of peace and justice in our communities, in our country, and in our world.

Recipients of this year's award will be recognized at a special event in early June at ArtRage Gallery, and receive a small stipend to support their activism. Parents, teachers, and friends will be invited to come and hear what young activists are doing in our community. 

Last year's Youth Peace Award was a great success. Consider applying for 2018.
