Nominations open for this year's Children's Climate Prize 2017

The search for this year's winner of the Children's Climate Prize is on! Founded by Telge Energi in 2016, the prize is awarded to a child or youth who has done something extraordinary for the climate and environment. Last year, the inaugural prize was very much appreciated and received much attention in the media. Now the search for this year's winner of the Children's Climate Prize is on.

Nominations open today, 19 April, and are easy to register on Telge Energi's website. Everything from projects to climate-smart inventions and gadgets can be nominated. The prize is awarded to an individual, group or organization. The competition is international and we accept nominations from all around the world.

Last year, Telge Energi awarded the first Children's Climate Prize to the inspiring climate warrior Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, age 16, from the USA. During his visit to Sweden for the prize-giving ceremony, he participated in the Skavlan TV talkshow, among other things, and took the climate debate to a whole new level.

The criteria for the Children’s Climate Prize have been developed and simplified, so that it is clear what is required for participation. We welcome nominations 19 April-30 September and all contributions can be easily reported using the nomination form on Telge Energi's website.

The award ceremony of the Children's Climate Prize 2017 will be held in the Södertälje City Hall, Stockholm, Sweden on 22 November.
