Anybody can nominate candidates for The Children of the Earth Prize. The winner may be individuals, groups or organizations anywhere in the world, provided that their activity is serious, well accounted for and comparable with the statutes of the foundation.

The statutes favour projects to improve the living conditions and life prospects for disadvantaged children, anywhere. There are no particular application forms to be filled out, a written resume submitted via regular mail or e-mail is a good beginning. For details or questions, please contact us.

It is a key condition that the prize money is used exclusively for the benefit of the children in question, and in a way that can be monitored by The Children of the Earth Foundation.
