Archbishop Tutu, patron of the Children’s Peace Prize, will award the prize to this year’s winner on 20 November, Universal Children’s Day, during a very special ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa, which also celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of the KidsRights Foundation. In a personal message to the finalists, Archbishop Tutu said: 

“I am in awe of these children, whose powerful message is amplified by their youthful energy and an unshakable belief that children can, no must, improve their own futures. They are true changemakers who have demonstrated most powerfully that children can move the world.”
