People who have won the award to date include personalities from many different areas of society. But they all have one thing in common: they are role models for the young generation in times of change and upheaval.

The list of award-winners includes illustrious names such as Niki Lauda, Uwe Seeler, Leslie Mandoki, Avraham Primor, Sebastian Kehl and Dr. Jürgen Rüttgers. They all set a shining example and have frequently demonstrated that it is possible to achieve one’s goals despite all adversities and that one can still make a difference today, even contrary to expectations. 

The category “Regional Project” has a special status as it distinguishes outstanding commitment for society on a regional level. In 2014, this category was won by “Building One World e.V.”, an association that promotes intercultural and interfaith understanding.
