About the Children's Prize:
The Children's Prize is a novel humanitarian contest to save children's lives. A $1 million prize will be awarded to the best plan for preserving the lives of children who would otherwise die before the age of five.
The project is structured as an open web-based contest, with eligibility extending to everyone, both individuals and organizations, across the world. Proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the number of potential lives saved, the probability of success, and the ease of verification. The winner will receive funding to directly execute the life-saving interventions outlined in their submitted proposal.
