Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai has been nominated for the World Children's Prize
for her work promoting education rights for girls in the face of Taliban threats.
The Swedish-based honor, sometimes also known as the "Children's Nobel Prize," seeks to raise global awareness about children's rights.
Millions of children around the world pick the recipient through a vote, and the winner receives $50,000.
In addition to Malala, there are two other nominees -- American education activist John Wood and Indira Ramangar, a Nepali activist for the children of prisoners.
Malala, 16, was severely injured when she was shot in the head by a Taliban attacker in 2012.
Malala, who now lives in Britain, last year won the European Union's Sakharov human rights prize and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
