Highlights from the 2013 Crissy Field Youth Reception

May 8, 2013

During the 2013 Prize tour in San Francisco, the 2013 Goldman Prize recipients were honored with a reception at the Crissy Field Center in Presidio National Park, where they had the opportunity to interact with students from the local youth groups, including Inspiring Young Emerging Leaders (I-YEL).

Prize recipients were interviewed by students before being introduced to the audience, where they each delivered brief remarks and words of encouragement for the youth. After the presentations, the Prize recipients participated in a tree-planting ceremony before enjoying refreshments and mingling with the students.

Year after year, the youth reception at the Crissy Field Center continues to be a highlight of Prize tour, with Prize recipients coming away feeling reenergized and inspired by their experience with the students.

Special thanks to the wonderful staff at the Crissy Field Center, Frank Dean and the National Park Service, Greg Moore and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, and Craig Middleton and the Presidio Trust.
