“To promote harmony, understanding, and respect among people of different races by identifying and recognizing high school age students whose efforts have had a significant, positive effect on race relations in their schools or communities.”
There is perhaps no greater challenge facing our country than increasing understanding and cooperation among people of different racial backgrounds. It is a challenge that every new generation encounters. We therefore believe that young people have a particularly important role to play, and hope, through the Princeton Prize, to recognize and encourage young people who have made or are making efforts to improve racial harmony.
Princeton and its alumni recognize that the issue of race relations continues to be one of the most urgent and important challenges facing our country. We have created this program to identify and commend young people who are working to increase understanding and mutual respect among all races. Through the Princeton Prize we hope to encourage others to join in these or similar efforts and to undertake initiatives of their own.
