The winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on Friday, and Malal Yousafzai, the youngest nominee ever, is considered by many to be the frontrunner.
The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has been awarded the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize.
It was thought that Malala Yousafzai might win, but I don’t think one can argue with the final decision. You can learn more at The Best Resources For Learning About Chemical Weapons.
