2012 World of Children Award Nominations OPEN!

2012 Official Call for Nominations – Deadline: April 1, 2012

The World of Children Award is dedicated to dramatically improving children’s lives by identifying and recognizing extraordinary individuals who work on behalf of children in need. The World of Children Award sets the Gold Standard in child advocacy worldwide and to receive a World of Children Award today is to be honored with a coveted badge of merit.

The World of Children Award is now searching the globe for selfless individuals who serve children with proven, sustainable programs. Our Award Winners must have a ten year track record of working with children, and now serve children over and above their regular employment, for little or no pay.
