Our Spirit of Anne Frank Awards are given out each year to students, teachers and citizens who have proven themselves exceptional leaders in their communities. This leadership is exhibited in their desire and drive to combat intolerance, prejudice and injustice.
The work and dedication shown by these applicants should be at such a level to enact lasting change, such as: helping to change legislation, starting or running a non-profit, and writing books or creating documentaries to bring awareness to issues in their communities. We offer these awards to those who carry on Anne Frank’s message and legacy of hope, courage, peace, justice and equality.
Students can apply for our Spirit of Anne Frank Scholarship Awards, which are available to high school seniors who will be attending a four year college. One winner will receive The Leah and Edward Frankel $10,000 scholarship, to be evenly divided throughout the four years of their college education. A second winner will receive a one-time $5,000 scholarship from ING. Additional runners up will receive a one-time stipend towards their college education.
Educators and Citizens can apply or be nominated for our Outstanding Educator Award or our Outstanding Citizen Award.
All winners will attend our Annual Spirit of Anne Frank Awards Gala held every June in honor of Anne’s birthday.
