Peace First Prize
The Peace First Prize celebrates peacemakers who have taken action to address injustice in their schools, neighborhoods, and communities. Peacemaking demands compassion (understanding other people), courage (taking risks to help others) and collaborative change (engaging others) to create justice, fairness, and peace where it didn't exist before.

Who Benefited More?
Joshy, a 9 year old Tribal boy, was matched with an eccentric retired special education teacher, Tim. Both of them were looking for a meaningful connection. Joshy had missed many days of school prior to being matched with Tim, a retired teacher. Although very bright, Joshy was falling behind in his academic work.
