What is the Prize about?
The European Drug Prevention
Prize has been awarded every two years since
2004 to three drug prevention projects that
involve young people.
A Jury of seven
young people agrees the rules and procedures for
the Prize. The jurors carefully evaluate the
applications submitted by organisations from
across Europe, and they agree a shortlist of
excellent projects. From this, they then select
up to three prize-winners; projects that they
judge are very good at drug prevention and which
combine this with genuine youth involvement.
The winning projects are invited to an Award
Ceremony where, in front of an audience drawn
from many different European countries, they
receive a trophy, a certificate, and a cash
prize of €5000.
receive a certificate of recognition; and all
applicant projects are sent feedback based on
the Jury’s discussions.
