Prize Seeks Young Humanitarians from All Fields

Sep. 11 /CSRwire/ - NEW YORK - September 11, 2007 - The Charles Bronfman Prize has launched its 2008 award cycle, marking the start of this year's international quest for extraordinary, young humanitarians. The Prize celebrates the vision and talent of an individual or team under 50 years of age whose humanitarian work has contributed significantly to the betterment of the world. Its goal is to bring public recognition to dynamic individuals whose Jewish values infuse their humanitarian accomplishments and provide inspiration to the next generations.

Nominations guidelines and forms for the $100,000 award are available at www.TheCharlesBronfmanPrize.com. Nominations for the 2008 Prize will be accepted through November 30, 2007.

Ellen Bronfman Hauptman and Andrew Hauptman together with Stephen Bronfman and Claudine Blondin Bronfman established the Prize to honor their father.

The Prize Founders are encouraging submissions. "Our father has spent a lifetime developing, implementing and supporting initiatives that help to strengthen the unity of the Jewish people," they said, adding "the Prize reflects his values and dedication to young people, and aims to carry on his legacy of commitment to Jewish life and community."

In identifying the kinds of nominees being sought, Charles Bronfman pointed to past Prize recipients Jay Feinberg, Dr. Alon Tal, and Dr. Amitai Ziv, calling them "next generation leaders whose vision for change in their respective fields is bettering the world in exciting and meaningful ways. Each has created a mechanism for acting on their vision and delivering measurable results. Their leadership, innovation, and impact are the best indicators of the kinds of nominees we are now seeking for the 2008 Prize cycle, and the work we hope that this Prize can draw attention to."

The Founders noted, "The Prize has been an early identifier of young visionaries who are changing the world around them. We have been privileged to see the amazing body of work that our recipients have achieved, and we are honored to pay tribute to them through this Prize."

The 2008 Prize will be awarded in the spring of 2008.
