October 1, 2011: Student Peacemaker Award Call for Submissions


NC Peace Action seeks to discover, honor and award young leaders who are working on solving the problems that face our world. We invite nominations of young adults age 18-24 and students age 13-17 who are involved in community service or social justice work that relates to broader problems facing the world as a whole. To complete entry, nominees must write an essay describing their service or active involvement in the community and how it relates to the global community. See guidelines for more details.

Deadline for submission of both the nomination and the essay is October 1. The Grand Prize for each age group is a trip with Witness for Peace to Latin America in 2012. Second prize is a trip to Washington in March to take part in a youth program to learn how to lobby Congress. Click here for forms and details.
