Military Child of the Year

The annual awards recognizes eight outstanding young people ages 13 to 18. Of those, seven will represent a branch of the armed forces — the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard, and Space Force — for their scholarship, volunteerism, leadership, extracurricular involvement, and other criteria while facing the challenges of military family life. The eighth award is the Military Child of the Year® Award for Innovation presented by Booz Allen Hamilton. This award goes to a military child who has designed a bold and creative solution to address a local, regional, or global challenge.

Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2021 Military Child of the Year Awards.  

Submissions will be accepted through December 7, 2020, 11:59PM EST.
