Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2014.

The award is one of the world’s most respected awards.

Malala has been recognised for her hard work promoting the right for girls to have an education.

The prize judges said that through  “her heroic struggle she has become a leading spokesperson for girls’ rights to education.”

Malala won it jointly with Indian child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi.

Malala, 17, is the youngest person to ever get the Nobel Peace Prize.

She started campaigning for children’s rights at the age of 11. Later she was attacked by the Taliban, an extremist group, in Pakistan for her campaign work.

Malala was seriously injured in the attack, but she was flown to the UK for treatment and has recovered well.

She now goes to school in Birmingham and continues her campaigning.

The Nobel Peace Prize is one of a number of Nobel prizes given to people or organisations who have made outstanding achievements in different areas.
