About the Awards

Our Spirit of Anne Frank Awards are given out each year to students, teachers and citizens who have proven themselves exceptional leaders in combating intolerance, prejudice and injustice in their communities. We offer these awards to those who carry on Anne Frank’s message and legacy of hope, courage, peace, justice and equality. Submissions are no longer being accepted. Submissions for 2017 will reopen in November.     Click here to Purchase Tickets!
