The prize for the best project is €5000, the second, €3000 and the third, €2000. As part of the prize, the three final laureates will be invited to visit the European Parliament (in Brussels or in Strasbourg). Also, the representatives of all the 27 national projects selected will be invited to a four-day trip in Aachen, Germany.
The prizes for the best three projects will be presented by the President of the European Parliament and representative of the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen.
The search is on to find the 2013 winners of the European Charlemagne Youth Prize, which recognises projects that promote Europe among young people. You can take part if you are aged 16-30 and are, or have been, involved in organising youth events or web-based projects with a European dimension.
Projects can be presented until the 28 January.
