Do you know of children or young people who have made a positive difference in your school or community or who have inspired others to create change?
The Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA), Academi Heddwch Cymru, Size of Wales and CWVYS are working with the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod to celebrate children and young people who have contributed to peace, sustainability and equality in their school, youth group, local community or in the wider world.
Together we will host a Young Peacemakers Awards Ceremony at the Eisteddfod on 6 July 2023 where young people will receive a certificate and an award.
Please encourage children and young people (between 5 and 25 yrs old) to get creative and express their thoughts, feelings and dreams about how the world can be a more peaceful, equitable and sustainable place.

- Young Peace Writer of the year (categories for Primary and Secondary aged young people)
- Young Peace Artist of the year (categories for Primary and Secondary aged young people)
