The SpringAward (SpringPrisen) is awarded to a person or institution whom the panel believes is a role model for innovation and renewal in children’s theatre.

The Spring Award was first presented at Springfestival 2007, when it was awarded to Kulturprinsen and Viborg Municipality and was presented by the then minister for culture, Brian Mikkelsen.

Former winners include Bø in 2009, Aaben Dans in Roskilde received the SpringAward in 2012 and in 2014 Forsøgsstationen won the prestigious award.
