2021 Diana Award for Young Leaders Worldwide
Deadline: March 12, 2021.
Established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, The Diana Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social action or humanitarian work.
This is the longest running award for young people through a retrospective nomination process only. We believe this is special. Young people do not work towards the award, rather they demonstrate their suitability through their actions, without any expectation of reward.
- In order to be eligible for The Diana Award, nominees must be aged between 9 and 25 and have been carrying out their activities for a minimum of 12 months.
- Nominators must know the young person in a professional capacity, i.e. teacher, youth worker. Nominations made by family members will not be accepted.
- Demonstrates commitment and passion to the cause, evidenced through their service to that cause and through social action.
- Demonstrates how the young person has led, owned and shaped the activities they are nominating them for.
- Demonstrates that, through the nominee’s positive attitude and passionate approach to life, they are a role model to others.
- Creates positive social change that is of benefit to the wider community.
- Evidence of transformation throughout the nominee’s service journey, including attitude, skills gained and challenges overcome.
