Diana Award for Young Change Makers Worldwide in UK 2021

The Diana Award invites nominations for the 2021 edition of the award presentation for young people living out Princess Diana’s Legacies worldwide.

Established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, The Diana Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social action or humanitarian work.

This is the longest-running award for young people that is given to individuals and groups through a retrospective nomination process only. They believe this is special. Young people do not work towards the award, rather they demonstrate their suitability through their actions, without any expectation of reward.
