The Prince of Girona Foundation announces the call for entries to the Impulsa Awards 2012, now in its third edition. Individuals and organizations interested in taking part can submit their projects or initiatives until the coming 30th March 2012.

The Awards were conceived to promote research, creativity, solidarity and development of talented young people with concerns to build a fairer world in a globalized environment. It consists of four individual awards (aimed at people between 16 and 35 years old) and one for organizations:

  • Impulsa Prize to an Organization: acknowledges the achievements of entrepreneuring institutions that work in favor of youth along the Foundation's lines of action.
  • Impulsa Science and Academics prize: acknowledges scientific experiences or projects that have a large potential of future development.
  • Impulsa Business prize: distinguishes young people with entrepreneuring initiative in the performance of a feasible original business project.
  • Impulsa Arts and Letters prize: honors talented young people who are carrying out promising work in any field of art or literature
  • Impulsa Society prize: distinguishes young social entrepreneurs with projects that foster the integration of marginalized groups and those at risk of exclusion.

Each of the awards is endowed with € 10,000 and a reproduction of a work by the Spanish sculptor Juan Muñoz.
