Charlemagne Youth Prize
The Prize is awarded annually to projects undertaken by young people which foster understanding, promote the development of a shared sense of European identity, and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community. Participate with your own project!
What's it all about?
The European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen invite young people from all the EU Member States to participate in a competition on EU development, integration and European identity issues.
Develop your project and enroll in the competition - to be eligible, the project must have started by 20 February, deadline for applications. They can still be running or have finished during 2016. The representatives of all 28 national projects selected will be invited to Aachen in Germany.
The prize for the best project is €7500, the second €5000 and the third €2500. As part of the prize, the three European laureates are invited to visit the European Parliament in Brussels or Strasbourg.
