Nuclear Free World Committee

Youth Peace Award


Are you a student or do you know a student who has been involved in
activities working for peace and justice to better our world?

The Nuclear-Free World Committee of the Syracuse Peace Council,
formerly Peace Action of CNY, has presented awards to local peace activists
for many years, but 17 years ago began recognizing young peace activists.
We are looking for high school students in Onondaga County who have
shown a devotion to peace, justice, and protecting the environment. The
students should have engaged in activities-- through school, place of
worship, or community—that demonstrate their passion to work on the
underlying causes of war, violence, and injustice. We hope this recognition
will help young people to become more aware of the issues of peace and
justice in our communities, in our country, and in our world.
Winners of the award will be recognized at a special event in the late spring
and receive a small stipend to support their activism. Parents, teachers, and
friends will be invited to come and hear what young activists are doing in
our community.
