Fifteen young people will be awarded prize money at a ceremony in spring 2016. Five grand prize winners will receive $1,000 each, and 10 additional winners will receive prizes of $500 to $700 each. Youth must write two essays, one 1,000 words or fewer and the other 500 words or fewer. Entrants must also submit a nomination letter from an adult saying why they deserve to win.
