Young Heroes Awards Sponsored by TD Bank

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. One student is named the President’s Honor Winner, which includes a monetary prize.
