Young European 2013 award!
Do you know a young person you wanted to be awarded for his or her European commitment? Maybe you already know the “Young European 2013”!
The Schwarzkopf-foundation is looking for young people from Europe between the ages of 18 and 26, (i.e. in 2013 the prize winner should not be older than 26) who are imaginative and active in an honorary capacity engaged for the European understanding and integration. Young people prepared to grasp the opportunities of our time in forging peaceful coexistence in a Europe of diversity.
Each year with this prize the Schwarzkopf Foundation rewards a young European for his/her outstanding commitment to fostering international understanding and the union of Europe. At the same time we want to encourage and motivate these young people to continue to champion these ideals.

It is also possible to use the sum to finance a project which promotes European integration. Such a project must further the aims of the Schwarzkopf Foundation and receive the agreement of the Foundation’s Management board in order to be accepted.
The award-winner will be chosen by a jury of personalities form the European Youth Parliament, the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Schwarzkopf Young People Foundation.
