Every year since 2003, Action For Nature (AFN), a U.S.-based non-profit, has sought to recognize and reward young people ages 8-16 who are taking action to solve the world’s tough environmental problems. Youth from countries around the globe send in their stories and explain their work, then a panel of judges including experts in environmental science, biology and education determines the year’s top achievers. Each Eco-Hero Award winner receives a cash prize, a certificate of achievement and other benefits.
