About 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.

Here’s how it works: Through November 3, 2022, we accepted 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.

Prudential Emerging Visionaries is a collaboration between Prudential and Ashoka, a leading organization in the social impact sector. Together, we aim to activate young people as changemakers, accelerating a world where everyone realizes their power to make change. You can read more about Prudential Emerging Visionaries in the press release here.
