Here in the heat of July, a number of our past winners are continuing to make a difference with projects that scream, “Summer!” From playgrounds to outdoor art, kids’ camps to gardening, we love the summery slant to these winners’ work. We recently caught up with a few of them to see what they’re doing these days to help other people and our planet.
We’re thrilled to celebrate this month the high school graduations of several of our past Barron Prize winners. As they and so many others mark this milestone and head into their next chapters, we thought it fitting to reprint a graduation address given by author and Barron Prize founder T. A. Barron.
We love staying in touch with our prize winners and are inspired by the good work they continue to do in the world. We recently caught up with a few of them and have highlighted here some of the great things they’re doing these days. Kudos to our winners, past and present, who continue to demonstrate what it looks like to live lives of courage, compassion, and hope!
