The award “Nordjysk Helt for Europæisk Ungdom” has been launched in September 2015. European Youth North Denmark artist of Danish-Canadian origins, Cody Lukas Anderson (http://codylukasanderson.wix.com/redefine) created a painting called “Hero Loading” (that signifies the on-going struggle of ambitious people towards the final goal) for the award. The original can be found in the office of European Youth North Denmark in the International House. This award is limited-edition, as there are only 100 replicas of the painting, and more than 80 of them are yet to find their owners.
Among the recipients of the award, two groups can be distinguished:
- Speakers/Personalities that have honored us with their presence at one of our events
- Members of European Youth Northern Denmark which have distinguished themselves through their dedication for the organization
The leadership of European Youth Northern Denmark decides the recipients of the award.
