The Princeton Prize in Race Relations is an awards program for high school students who lead and organize efforts to improve race relations within their schools or communities. The Prize was founded in 2003 to support and encourage young activists committed to improving race relations.  PRRR operates through 27 Regional Committees and has an At-Large Committee to support areas where we currently have no geographic presence.  We are an alumni volunteer-run organization, enlisting the support of over 450 Princetonians, all dedicated to an inclusive and supporting society. 

 

The Central/Southern NJ region received a record number of outstanding applications this year. This year’s Award Ceremony for the award winner and all certificate recipients is scheduled for May 1 in Princeton. The award winner is invited to attend the 2019 Princeton Prize Symposium on Race.  The Symposium, which will be held in late April, provides the opportunity for prize recipients from all regions to meet like-minded students to engage in meaningful discussions about race and race relations. Winners will present their project to Princeton University students, alumni and also to fellow winners.
