Since the cost to attend a university or college has literally skyrocketed, wouldn’t you want to do everything possible to lessen your financial burdens? That’s why you don’t want to let the opportunity to apply for the Gloria Barron Prize for Young Heroes Award pass you by.
T.A. Barron, a lifetime champion of youth, believes that “no one is too young to do something helpful. Every one of us can make a difference.” This means you too. If you are a guy or a girl between the ages of 8 to 18, an outstanding leader, and someone who has made a significant positive impact on people, your community and the environment around you, this opportunity is definitely the one for you! The Barron Prize has awarded more than half a million dollars to young leaders and has won the support of organizations such as the Girl Scouts of U.S.A., the National Youth Leadership Council, and the National Geographic Education Foundation just to name a few.
To help the young social entrepreneur out even more, this scholarship has even increased the amount of award money from $5,000 to $10,000 per winner! Why wouldn’t you want to be one of the awardees? Stop what you are doing right now and go apply! The applications can only be submitted online and are due by April 15, 2018. The winners will be announced in September. Don’t miss out on this opportunity! Go to www.barronprize.org to get the deets.
