Following the motto "WELTKLASSE” (WORLD CLASS), this year we want to honour the commitment of children and young people with the #FARBENBEKENNEN Award 2021:. Children and young people who have had to flee their homes, have come to Germany as refugees to live in Berlin and who have distinguished themselves here through their outstanding level of commitment.
For example, because they are class representatives, give free tutoring lessons to fellow students or are involved in other ways in their free time, at school, in a club or organisation.
They help others, get involved and take responsibility.
With this award we want to let them know: You are WORLD-CLASS!
• are between 8 and 16 years old,

• live in Berlin,
• are actively involved in something, at school or in a club or organisation for example, and if you help others.
