How does the Children’s Prize contest work?
In the 1st round, called the Entry Form round, the contest is open to the public all over the world. That’s right! Anyone at all – whether an individual, a non-profit, a government entity or a commercial company – can apply for the $1 million prize. The Entry Form is easily accessible through our website by clicking the ‘Apply Now’ button. The 1st round is open from 14 Jan 2013 until 1 May 2013.
The 2nd round, called the Prize Plan round, is by invitation only. Selected applicants will be notified via email and asked to submit a more detailed prize plan proposal, including supporting material such as photos, videos, reference letters, etc. The deadline for the Prize Plan round will be in late June.
The submitted Prize Plans will then be judged by the Children’s Prize creators, administrators, and judges. Finalists will be announced in August 2013. The life-saving interventions proposed by these Finalists will be showcased on our website in an effort to increase awareness and encourage broader support for their efforts. The Winner of the $1 million Children’s Prize will be selected and notified prior to our Award Ceremony, which will take place in December 2013.
