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.


  1. 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.
  2. Nominators must know the young person in a professional capacity, i.e. teacher, youth worker. Nominations made by family members will not be accepted. 
  3. Demonstrates commitment and passion to the cause, evidenced through their service to that cause and through social action.
  4. Demonstrates how the young person has led, owned and shaped the activities they are nominating them for.
  5. Demonstrates that, through the nominee’s positive attitude and passionate approach to life, they are a role model to others.
  6. Creates positive social change that is of benefit to the wider community.
  7. Evidence of transformation throughout the nominee’s service journey, including attitude, skills gained and challenges overcome.


UK BASED: Successful UK based nominees will be invited to attend an Award Ceremony near their local area, where their achievement will be celebrated alongside their peers.

INTERNATIONAL: Successful international nominees will be celebrated virtually on our International Ceremony Day which takes place on International #YouthDay on 12th August 2020.

THE LEGACY AWARD: Both UK based and international recipients of The Diana Award are also eligible for The Legacy Award, which takes place on a biennial basis
