European Charlemagne Youth Prize

This Prize is awarded 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.

Prizes of €7,500, €5,000 and €2,500 are awarded to the winning projects. The final laureates are also invited to visit the European Parliament (in Brussels or in Strasbourg).

One representative of all the 28 selected national projects are invited to attend several events in Aachen, Germany, including the Youth Prize Award Ceremony, which always takes place two days before Ascension Day, the day on which the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen is awarded.
