Congratulations to the 2013 Brower Youth Award Winners

October 24, 2013

Congratulations to the 14th Annual Brower Youth Award winners: Jonathan Ferrer, Alex Freid, Arielle Klagsbrun, Cassandra Lin, Chloe Maxmin and Amira Odeh.

The award ceremony took place on October 22, 2013, at the Norse Theater in San Francisco. Goldman Prize staff members Lani Alo and Liz Means had the pleasure of attending the energizing and inspiring ceremony.

“There is nothing more refreshing than hearing the stories of these young people that are working to make a difference in their communities and around the world,” Means said.

The Brower Youth Awards are presented by Earth Island Institute’s New Leaders Initiative, based in Berkeley, California. Six innovative and strategic environmental activists between the ages of 13-22 are honored with the award every year. Winners receive a $3,000 cash prize and a weeklong visit to San Francisco- where they attend meetings and workshops to improve their networking and communications skills.

The Brower Youth Awards were inspired in part by the Goldman Environment Prize, who is a sponsor of the event. Additionally, 2009 Goldman Prize winner Maria Gunnoe is a member of the selection committee for the Brower Youth Awards.
