Brower Youth Awards
Since 2000, the Brower Youth Award has recognized outstanding youth leaders who are making strides in the environmental movement. Under the umbrella of the New Leaders Initiative, the Brower Youth Awards provides an elevated platform to showcase and honor the accomplishments of young environmental leaders.
Each year, six young people based in North America are awarded the prize, joining a growing and diverse cadre of green leaders who are publicly recognized for their sustainable projects, innovative ideas, and informed analyses.
Who is eligible to apply for a Brower Youth Award? Applicants are assessed on leadership, an environmental project, and personal qualities. Find out all the details here.
What is the amount of the award?
Each of the six recipients of the Brower Youth Awards will receive a $3,000 cash prize, a professionally produced short film about their work from an Emmy award winning film crew, and flight and lodging accommodations for a week long trip to the San Francisco Bay Area.
During their stay in California, the recipients will participate in a camping trip, leadership activities, speaking and media engagements, and trainings and environmental conferences giving them a chance to meet with mentors and peers. We invest in their continued success by providing ongoing access to resources, mentors, and opportunities to develop leadership skills. The week of activities culminates in the awards ceremony in front of more than 900 guests in San Francisco on October 20, 2015.
