Young Heroes Awards Sponsored by TD Bank

The annual TD Bank Young Heroes Award recognizes young people who have championed liberty through their actions.

Acting on the principle that liberty is a right of every person and community, the Young Heroes Award recognizes young people who have identified areas where liberty is lacking, and have taken action to make positive social change in their schools and communities. Each year, we look for young people who have championed liberty through civic engagement, conflict resolution, promoting diversity, and school or community leadership.

All winners receive recognition at an awards ceremony at the Museum. Their stories are featured for one year in a Museum exhibit. They receive a certificate of achievement, medallion, and other gifts. They may also have the opportunity to represent this program at future Museum events. One student is named the President’s Honor Winner, which includes a monetary prize.
