WHAT ARE THE YOUNG JUSTICE NERDS AWARDS?

The Young Justice Nerds awards (YJN) are a ‘first of their kind’ competition to celebrate high school and college students across the country doing the work of promoting improvements in criminal justice.  The goal is to lift up the passions, genius, and inspiration young people have for justice. By highlighting the amazing talents of young people from around the country, we also demonstrate how our children’s brilliance can improve our neighborhoods.

WHAT WILL YOU WIN?

Young Justice Nerds Awards winners will receive:

  • An all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C.
  • An awards ceremony in their honor with the Head of Google Education, North America, the President of the Center for Policing Equity, and a member from the NFL Players Coalition, and
  • A monetary prize

Winners will also have their names, pictures, and project publicized by teams at the Center for Policing Equity, Google Education, and The Atlantic.
