- between the ages of 8 and 18 (not yet age 19)
- permanent residents of and currently residing in the U.S.A. or Canada

The Barron Prize does not discriminate against its applicants based on race, color, ethnicity, national origin, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
Our judges use the following criteria in choosing winners:
1. Winners must have organized and led an extraordinary service activity which has clearly benefited other people or the planet we share.
• The service activity must have been initiated and motivated primarily by the winner himself or herself.
• The service activity cannot have been done solely to complete an assignment for school or work.
2. Winners must have:
• demonstrated positive spirit, courage, intelligence, generosity, and high moral purpose.
• shown initiative, tenacity, and unselfishness in pursuit of their goals.
• accomplished something with inspirational value—something that could inspire others to make a difference.
• done more than survive a difficult personal challenge. Their heroism must have made an impact on the world beyond themselves.
3. Winners may or may not have received recognition for their heroic work. Fame itself shall not have been a motivating factor.
