Action for Nature Eco-Hero Awards
Age limit: 8-16
Every year since 2003, Action For Nature (AFN), a U.S.-based non-profit, has sought to recognize and reward young people who are taking action to solve the world’s tough environmental problems.
We are proud to honor the work of young people between the ages of 8 and 16 all over the globe who have done creative environmental projects with a cash prize, certificate of achievement, and public recognition. If you are selected as a winner, you’ll be the first person in Thailand to have achieved this.
1. The project concerns environmental health, advocacy, research or protection of the natural world.
2. The project is action-based and self-initiated, and not one assigned by a teacher or other adult.
3. The project is close to completion or was completed within the last year.
4. Applicants must be between the ages of 8 and 16 on February 28th in the year of application.
5. Science Fair and Scouting Badge projects will only be considered if they include environmental action, educational outreach to others or extended studies beyond the Science Fair and Scouting Badges.
6. We do not accept (a) projects related to domestic or confined animals, (b) compositions or reports.
7. Previous winners, immediate relatives of AFN board members, active reading panel members, or judges, may not apply.
8. Only applications in English are accepted.
Submission is free, you just have to go to their website, make sure you read all the judging criteria, then fill out an application form which is online.
Winners will receive:
• PUBLIC RECOGNITION AND MEDIA PRESS RELEASE
• CASH PRIZE UP TO $500
• CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR OUTSTANDING EFFORTS TO HELP PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE ENVIRONMENT
Just as importantly, winners will serve as role models for other young people by demonstrating that each individual can make a difference.
Deadline: 28 February each year
