New York, NY. –  Alamosa Elementary’s Isabella Griffin, 10, is a peace prize winner.

Peace First (www.peacefirst.org), a national nonprofit dedicated to teaching critical peacemaking skills to youth, announced 10 winners of the first annual Peace First Prize today at a press conference at the New York Public Library during NBC News’ “2013 Education Nation Summit.”

The Peace First Prize is a national award recognizing leading youth peacemakers who are focused on creating peaceful schools and communities.

The winners will comprise the first class of Prize Fellows, who each receive a two-year, $50,000 Fellowship to further their peacemaking work.

Last year, Griffin created Be a Buddy, Not a Bully to put an end to bullying at the elementary school. She drafted an anti-bullying pledge for her classmates to sign and designed purple and blue bracelets to signify their commitment to a safe and accepting learning environment.
