About Us

The mission of The Lewis Prize is to partner with leaders who create positive change by investing in young people through music. We believe young people with access to high-quality creative youth development music opportunities will mature into thriving individuals.

However, inequitable systems often fail to prioritize music learning in young people’s lives. As a result, too many young people are not supported to express themselves creatively. This stifles young people’s potential to become powerful citizens. Through learning, performing and creating music with peers and caring mentors, young people can develop greater agency over their lives and contribute positively to their communities.

We believe that music in the lives of young people is a catalytic force​ to drive positive change in our society. ​Our vision is for every young person, regardless of who they are or where they live, to have the opportunity to access music programs from a young age. We aim to do this by finding and awarding ambitious leaders who are already strengthening young people in their communities through rigorous and diverse music programs.
