Prudential Emerging Visionaries
Prudential Emerging Visionaries is a national recognition program that awards young people for their innovative solutions to financial and societal challenges in their communities. An Emerging Visionary is a changemaker – a young person with a bold vision for impact and a project to make it happen. Prudential and its partner Ashoka, a leading organization in the social impact sector, is accepting applications from young leaders ages 14-18 across the country who are challenging the status quo and bringing fresh perspectives to solving financial and societal challenges. Winners may qualify to receive up to $15,000 in awards, an all-expenses-paid trip to Prudential’s headquarters with a parent or guardian, as well as ongoing coaching and skills development to grow their projects.

Panera Bread Foundation
The Panera Bread Foundation envisions a world in which young people can unlock their full potential and dare to dream — a world in which opportunity and economic mobility are accessible and equitable for all. It awards organizations who share a common vision and purpose of investing in children and youth to become leaders. It supports non-profit organizations with programs predominately for underserved, at-risk, or underrepresented high school and middle school aged students. The high school programs have historically focused on keeping youth in school to graduate and to pursue a post-secondary school or start a long-term career. The middle school programs have focused on developing skill sets and helping children build healthy relationships with trusted adults through mentorship programs. Other programs have specialized in STEM or STEAM programs for students.
