Save the Children's Campaign to Honor Changemakers for Children

To celebrate a century of fighting for the rights of children all around the world, global non-profit Save the Children is leading a national search for young changemakers trying to create significant improvements in the lives of other kids. Do you know of a little leader taking tremendous strides to assist kids in need? Save the Children needs your help to discover the inspiring contributions of young champions for change.

Nominate an extraordinary kid who deserves recognition for their hard work to instill positive change to help underprivileged children. Submissions can be made via mail or through the Save the Children's website until 11:59:59 p.m. EST on June 14. Official rules for entry are available here. Be sure to take the time to elect a young candidate whose hard work and commitment command public attention. One child will receive an all-expense paid trip for two to New York City to be honored at the grand Illumination Gala on Sept. 12, 2019.

"In Save the Children's Centennial year, we've named people from all walks of life from advocates, everyday heroes, policymakers, artists, philanthropists, teachers and beyond—people who have dedicated at least part of their life to ensuring kids have what they need and changing children's lives for the better," said Carolyn Miles, President & CEO of Save the Children in a press statement. "I know, every single day, people around the world are doing tremendous things for children, and we're looking forward to receiving—and celebrating—even more changemakers for children."

Save the Children was founded in 1919 following the end of World War I by pioneering philanthropist and social reformer Eglantyne Jebb, who was dedicated to fighting tirelessly to support suffering children worldwide. Since that visionary start, Save the Children advocates have continued to pave a path toward fundamentally improving the circumstances of disadvantaged youth in their communities to ensure that young voices are heard, acknowledged and addressed by legislators holding power to facilitate much-needed change.
