This year’s recipients of the Champions for Children: The Next Generation Award is Sole Bros, a not-for-profit organization founded by five Cincinnati high school students. Sole Bros is being honored for their work in collecting, reconditioning and distributing gently worn sneakers to needy children both in the United States and across the globe. Read more about these young men and their inspiring work.

This youth award celebrates a high school project led and implemented by students in grades 9-12 who are taking action on behalf of the children of our community—locally or abroad. The goal is to reinforce in the leaders of tomorrow the importance of investing in the children of today.
