Every year, Hands On! - International Association of Children in Museums, honors an exceptional exhibition or project in the children museums field with the Children in Museums Award. It is a joint venture between Hands On! and the European Museum Academy and this year's award will be presented at the 11th Hands On! conference in the Czech Republic! Not only is it a great opportunity to promote your project and institution, but the winner also receives a price money of 5.000 Euro!

We are on the lookout for creative and innovative exhibitions and programmes for children up to 14 years. The judges not only value creativity and innovation, but also consider the ways in which an exhibition or programme can change the course of museum thinking or museum practice, nationally as well as internationally. They also raise the question, of how elements of the winning exhibition or programme can be incorporated into the museum field. That is why the judges pay special attention to interpretation and presentation.

If you have or know of such an innovative and incredible programme, do not hesitate and apply now! for the Children in Museums Award 2017! Deadline is 1 March 2017.
