WWF Youth Leadership Award - applications welcome

The WWF-US Youth Leadership Award acknowledges the achievements of exceptional young people working toward conservation solutions in the United States, and seeks to inspire other young people to get involved in opportunities within their communities.

The award recognizes and celebrates youth leaders in their community who are pushing the needle and making outstanding contributions for the environment—leading initiatives across issues including climate change mitigation, wildlife conservation, food waste, and habitat protection.

The winner will be given a $5,000 award which can be used to help fund their academic and/or professional development related to their conservation work. The recipient will be presented with the award by WWF-US President and CEO, Carter Roberts, at the WWF-US Annual Meeting typically held in mid-October each year.
