The Europe Prize

The Europe Prize

To reward municipalities for their active promotion of the European ideal (twinnings, European events, exchange visits, etc.), the Assembly offers every year four awards: the European Diploma, the Flag of Honour, the Plaque of Honour and the Europe Prize. Created by PACE in 1955, the Europe Prize is the highest distinction that can be bestowed on a European town for its actions in the European domain. The prize consists of a trophy, a medal, a diploma and a scholarship to be spent on a study visit within Europe for young people from the winning town. More
