This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

Everyday Young Heroes are young people, ages 5-25, who are improving their communities through service to others and making significant progress in achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each week, the YSA Team selects one young person to receive this honor. The chosen youth can have a project that is developed in or outside of the classroom, in conjunction with an organization or religious institution, or can be an initiative or organization they started on his or her own or with their friends. Projects can provide a direct service, be philanthropic, or raise awareness or advocacy around a particular community need.

The young person and their nominator are notified via email upon being selected as an Everyday Young Hero. The Hero receives a congratulatory letter, a certificate of recognition, and is highlighted in YSA’s newsletter and on social media, raising the profile of his or her good work.

This year, thanks to generous support from Newman’s Own Foundation, YSA will also select 12 winners- one per month- to receive $250 grants to continue and expand their project. If you know an Everyday Young Hero, submit your nomination here.

Work with a community organization or school to conduct a project that helps make progress in achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Student projects are submitted in an application form on the YSA website by a nominating adult.

Applications are evaluated by members of Youth Service America.
