The Volvo Adventure Award rewards young people creating their own environmental projects. There are two competitions: 1) The Adventure Award for youth, ages 13-16, working in groups of two to five. Winners are invited to the final competition in Göteborg, Sweden. 2) The Great Big Bob the Bunny Cartoon contest for youth under the age of 13. Winning cartoons will be included in a book, and the winners will be invited to a 2008 UNEP Children's conference in Stavanger, Norway.
