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

The Young Heroes Award recognizes young people who have taken action to make positive social change in their schools and communities. Each year we look for young people who have championed liberty by engaging in civic activities; promoting respectful resolutions to conflict; advocating for diversity and inclusive environments for everyone; and taking leadership roles in their school or community.

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.

Additionally, one student is named the President’s Honor Winner, which includes a monetary prize. This year we also presented a student with our Spark Award for Innovation, Creativity, Perseverance and Respect, created in memory of Alan Holmes Johnson-McNutt, Manager of Outreach for the National Liberty Museum.

The 2018 Young Heroes have received their awards. Click here to learn their names and see pictures of this year’s ceremony.

Nominations for next year’s Young Heroes Award will open in March, 2019.
