The Power of Children Awards: Making A Difference

The Children’s Museum recognizes youths that make significant contributions and create important projects to benefit others. The Power of Children Awards (POCA) were created in 2005 to align with the mission of The Children’s Museum. The awards were inspired by the museum’s influential permanent exhibit, The Power of Children: Making a Difference, which features three extraordinary children who touched the world in unique ways: Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges, and Ryan White. Each award recipient receives:- A $2,000 grant to continue his or her extraordinary work.- Partial four-year post-secondary scholarship to a participating institution of higher learning.- Recognition in the museum’s The Power of Children exhibit for at least one year.- Honor and recognition during a special awards event at The Children's Museum.For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
