On December 4th, KidsRights will award the International Children’s Peace Prize to a child who fights courageously for children’s rights. In line with tradition, the prize will be awarded during an official ceremony by a Nobel Peace Laureate in the renowned Hall of Knights in international city of peace and justice The Hague, the Netherlands. The guest list has been closed for weeks. Fortunately, for those who can’t attend, KidsRights will stream the award ceremony live on Facebook.
