The children in the World’s Children’s Prize Child Jury are experts on the rights of the child through their own life experiences as, for example, debt slaves, child soldiers, street children or refugees, or through having experienced other violations of the rights of the child. They all fight for the rights of the child.
• The children can stay on the Jury until the year they turn 18. Every jury child primarily represents all the children in the world who share the same experiences. However, they also represent children of their own country and continent. Whenever possible, the jury includes children from all continents and all major religions. Meet the Jury members here.
