We are waiting for submissions until the 18th of October. You can find more information in the rules and regulations and the FAQ section.

The Award commemorates Irena Sendler - a social activist, a Righteous Among the Nations who saved over two thousand Jewish children during World War II. The award was founded to support teachers, who share the same values as Irena Sendler in their work with students and local communities: tolerance, respect for diversity, responsibility for others and courage. 
The Award was established by the “Children of Holocaust” Association in 2006 in Poland, in partnership with the EFC Foundation. Mirosław Skrzypczyk, a teacher at the Roman Czernecki Szczekociny School Complex (EFC Partner School), is also one of its recipients. 

The program of the Award is carried out by the Civic Education Center.
