The Children’s Prize is an open web-based competition focused on under-five child survival with eligibility extending to everyone, individuals and organizations, across the world. Through our entrepreneurial and scientific approaches we are ensuring that more children under the age of five survive and thrive. The 2015 Children’s Prize seeks the best and most effective project that proposes to save the greatest number of children’s lives. One winner will be awarded the $250,000 prize to directly execute their proposed project, within two years. The 1st round deadline is Friday, June 12, 2015. The 2015 Children’s Prize seeks the best and most effective project proposal to save the greatest number of children’s lives with $250,000. Entries will be evaluated based on the: • ability to impact rates within a child mortality indicator (U5MR, IMR, NMR, etc.), • effectiveness, innovation and scalability of the intervention approach within global health, • feasibility of the proposed lives-saved estimate, • probability of success, • ease of verification, and • inclusion of an impact assessment. To ensure that more children under the age of five survive and thrive, we must harness knowledge from around the world and across a broad range of disciplines to find the most effective solutions. Project proposals submitted may include, but are not limited to, intervention solutions in healthcare services, technology, education, infrastructure and agriculture.
