As we head into a new year of the Barron Prize, we’re full of gratitude! We’re grateful we’ll again be awarding each of our winners $10,000 — double the prize amount of previous years. We’re thankful for the continuing support of our national partners and for the recent addition of several new ones. And we so appreciate the ongoing strong media coverage of our winners’ work, knowing those stories will inspire others to action.
We’re thrilled to announce our 2018 Barron Prize winners and honorees! They’re an inspiring group of 25 young heroes from across the U.S. and Canada who are putting their passions and talents to work to do so much good in the world. They’ve hatched creative ways to address issues like literacy, plastics pollution, hunger, water conservation, and renewable energy.
