Nominations are now invited for the Freedom Prize 2021. The Freedom Prize is an educational initiative that aims to raise awareness of freedom, peace, and Human rights, inspired by the values of the D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 in Normandy.
The Freedom Prize invites young people aged 15 to 25 from France and around the world to choose an inspiring person or organization, committed to an exemplary fight for freedom.
What makes this prize so special is that it involves young people at each of its stages: from the proposals submitted to the international panel of judges to the final selection of the winner.
The Freedom Prize will run throughout the school year and features 3 key stages:
- The call for proposals: Young people aged 15-25 are invited to present the person or organization whose fight for the freedom they wish to make know.
- The deliberations of the international panel of judges: An international panel of judges made up of 24 young people aged 15 to 25 meets for two days to consider the applications for “Our Freedom Prize 2021”, choosing three people or organizations as finalists for the online vote.
- The Online Vote: An online vote is accessible for several months, for 15-25-year-olds from around the world to choose the winner of the 2021 Freedom Prize from the three finalists.
The laureate of the Freedom Prize will receive an endowment of € 25,000 to support their fight during an award ceremony that will take place in Caen as part of the Normandy World Peace Forum in June 2021
