About the prize

The Children's Climate Prize is awarded to a child or youth who has done something extraordinary for the climate and environment. It can be anything from an initiative or project to a climate-smart invention or gadget.

Telge Energi launched the Children's Climate Prize in 2016 and the first award was presented to the inspiring climate warrior Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, age 16, from the USA. Now it is time to find this year's climate hero! We have developed and simplified the criteria for nominations. We welcome nominations until 30 September. The winner, appointed by a jury, will receive a medal, a diploma and prize money of 50,000 Swedish kronor at the prize ceremony in Södertälje City Hall on 22 November.

Who can nominate?

Children and young people can nominate themselves. Family, friends, teachers or other related parties can also nominate a child or youth. We open for contributions 19 April and want your nominations submitted before 30 September for participation this year. A jury will appoint the finalists and finally the winner.

Who can win the prize?

The Children's Climate Prize is awarded to a child or youth who has done something extraordinary that contributes positively to the climate and the environment, through an initiative, project, invention or engagement in an organization. The prize can be awarded to an individual, group or organization.

If you become one of this year's finalists, we will need to validate your nominated entry. Projects, inventions, gadgets or organizations must work as planned and have a directly positive impact on the climate and environment.
