The Princeton Prize in Race Relations is an awards program for high school students who lead and organize efforts to improve race relations within their schools or communities. The prize was founded in 2003 to support and encourage young activists committed to improving race relations. We encourage applications from any current student in Grades 9-12 who, in the past 12 months, has organized and played a leadership role in a volunteer effort that has positively impacted race relations in his or her school or community.
First prize is a $1,000 award and an all-expenses-paid trip to Princeton University to attend the Princeton Prize Symposium on Race. Runners-up receive Certificates of Accomplishment. We have two awards programs in New Jersey, one for northern New Jersey and one for central and southern New Jersey.
You can nominate students at pprize.princeton.edu. We will send them a link to the application and encourage them to apply. Applications must be received by Jan 31.
