The Freedom Prize invites young people from 15 to 25 years old from Normandy, other French Regions and all over the world to choose each year a person or an organisation fighting for freedom. What makes this prize so special is that it involves young people at each of its stages: from the proposals submitted to the international panel of judges to the final selection of the winner.
