The 2013 Goldman Prize Tour Continues in Washington, DC

April 19, 2013

Leaving San Francisco on Tuesday morning for Washington, DC, the 2013 Goldman Prize recipients have not slowed down a bit in the days following Monday’s award ceremony.

The Prize recipients had the honor of meeting with several prominent political leaders including President Barack Obama, acting EPA Administrator Robert Perciasepe and Chair Nancy Sutley from the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

The Prize recipients also joined several members of Congress, including Representative Nancy Pelosi, for a luncheon on Capitol Hill.

The 2013 Goldman Prize ceremony in Washington, DC took place on Wednesday, April 17 at our new venue- the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Local NBC news anchor Barbara Harrison returned as Master of Ceremonies for the standing-room only event and guests enjoyed musical entertainment from singer-songwriter Patty Reese.

Tonight the Prize recipients will say farewell to each other as the 2013 Prize tour wraps-up with a farewell dinner.
