Awards of $10,000 to USA young military dependents, ages 13 to 18, to recognize exceptional volunteerism, scholarship, extracurricular involvement, and leadership in the face of challenging military family life. One award will be presented to a nominee who has designed a creative and bold solution to address a local, regional, or global challenge. In addition to cash prizes, awardees will also receive a laptop computer and other donated gifts and will be flown with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C. for the gala award presentation, during which senior leaders of each branch of service will present the awards.
The annual awards will recognize seven outstanding young people ages 13 to 18. Six of them will represent a branch of the armed forces — the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard — for their scholarship, volunteerism, leadership, extracurricular involvement, and other criteria while facing the challenges of military family life. The seventh 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.
All seven Military Child of the Year® Award recipients will be flown with a parent or guardian to Washington, D.C., to be recognized at the April 2020 gala, during which senior leaders of each branch of service will present the awards.
