Nominate a Young Hero For The Diana Award!

Why nominate someone for The Diana Award? Because now more than ever, it’s important to recognise those young individuals who are fighting for the future they want to see.

Established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, The Diana Award is the most prestigious accolade a young person aged 9-25 years can receive for their social action or humanitarian work.

Our students are welcome to nominate their chosen change-maker to help us all find the next generation of young heroes:


In order to be eligible for The Diana Award, nominees must be aged between 9 and 25 and have been carrying out their activities for a minimum of 12 months.

The The Diana Award nominees must demonstrate:


Commitment and passion to the cause, evidenced through their service to that cause and through social action.


Creating positive social change that is of benefit to the wider community.


Proving how the young person has led, owned and shaped the activities they are nominating them for.


Evidence of transformation throughout the nominee’s service journey, including attitude, skills gained and challenges overcome.


Showing that, through the nominee’s positive attitude and passionate approach to life, they are a role model to others.

Nominators must know the young person in a professional capacity, i.e. teacher, youth worker. Nominations made by family members will not be accepted.

The next Legacy Award ceremony will take place in late 2021.
