Karson Baldwin '21 Receives Princeton Prize in Race Relations

Congratulations to Karson Baldwin '21, who received The Princeton Prize in Race Relations! The Princeton Prize is a national service program recognizing outstanding high school students who show leadership by improving race relations in their communities. Karson traveled to Princeton last month to join over 25 high school students from around the nation in a symposium on race relations.

Karson received the award for founding Oné Respé, an initiative to build friendship and understanding among students of Cleveland’s independent schools and immigrant and refugee students at the International Newcomers Academy. Through Project RACE Kids, which he also founded, and Project RACE Teens, of which he currently is president, Baldwin also launched Multiracial Heritage Week. To date, he has obtained proclamations from governors of 12 U.S. states supporting the initiative.
