Autumn Peltier, a 13-year-old Canadian girl who’s been a dynamic water activist since the age of eight, has been nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize for her efforts to inspire people for the protection and conservation of a valuable natural resource.

Peltier, who hails from Wikwemikong, on Manitoulin Island in Ontario, briefly met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last year and voiced her concern over polluting pipelines with teary eyes that moved the onlookers, notes Green Matters.

The KidsRights organization will declare the winner on November 10, writes APTN News. Excited about the nomination, Peltier said she will continue her campaign to save natural water resources whether she bags the award or not.
