Difference Maker Awards


Duke Energy Children's Museum's Difference Maker Awards honor youth, adults, businesses and agencies that share our focus to better the lives of children in our community. Difference Makers go out of their way to enact significant change in the community. They distinguish themselves from others by their dedication and impact.
