Child Right Ambassadors



Tens of thousands of young people around the world have been empowered as changemakers and World’s Children’s Prize Child Rights Ambassadors. They train other children but also teachers, local leaders, parents and the media on child rights, especially girls’ rights.

The Global Vote



Through the Global Vote, you can make your voice heard and help decide who will receive the World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child. You have the right to vote up to and including the year you turn 18. Remember: Nobody else should be able to influence your decision – not your friends, teachers, or parents.

Child Jury members

The Child Jury



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.
