Canadian Coalition for the Rights of Children
Awards and recognition to Canada nonprofits, businesses, agencies, IHEs, groups, and individuals including children and youth supportive of promoting or protecting children's rights. Candidates can be nominated for one of several awards based on their projects or efforts related to one or more children's rights.
Awards should be given to persons or groups that have been outstanding in promoting or protecting children’s rights. It is not necessary to provide an award in each category every year. In exceptional circumstances the same award may be presented to two recipients. Current CCRC board members are excluded from receiving awards.
There are four categories of awards:
1. Children’s Rights Champion: for work that makes a significant difference in the lives of children and advances respect for their rights.
2. Children’s Rights Trailblazer: for original approaches that model rights-consistent activities.
3. Children’s Rights Supporter: for individuals or companies who provide resources or support to promote children’s rights.
4. Children’s Rights Youth Voice Award: for a child or young person or group of children/young people who exercise voice and participation to advance the fulfillment of Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
