WATCH THE 2022 AWARD CEREMONY

Highlights from the Washington, DC Goldman Prize Ceremony

May 1, 2014

The 2014 Goldman Prize ceremony in Washington, DC took place on Wednesday, April 30 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Despite the rainy weather, hundreds of people turned out to support and celebrate the 2014 Goldman Prize recipients.

Barbara Harrison returned for her ninth year as Master of Ceremonies for the event. Harrison is an Emmy-award winning anchor for News4 midday at NBC4 Washington. After more than three decades as a journalist in the nation’s capital she has covered everything from politics to performing arts.

Renowned author and journalist Thomas Friedman was the special guest speaker.  Friedman has won the Pulitzer Prize three times for his work at The New York Times. His foreign affairs column, which appears twice a week, reports on US domestic politics and foreign policy, Middle East conflicts, international eco­nomics, environment, biodiversity and energy. Friedman is the author of six books for which he has received several awards, in­cluding “The World is Flat,” and “Hot, Flat, and Crowded.”

During the ceremony, the audience enjoyed an energetic performance from Trio Caliente, a musical group that blends flamenco, pop, and Brazilian jazz.

After the ceremony, guests had the opportunity to mingle with the 2014 Goldman Prize recipients at a catered reception. Check back soon for more photos and highlights from the Washington, DC ceremony and other Prize tour events.
