Each year the Brower Youth Awards recognizes six young people in North America for their achievements in environmental fields, more specifically environmental justice advocacy. The award is open to those activists (ages 13-22) who demonstrate true leadership and have made a positive environmental or social impact with a specific project. 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. The week of activities culminates in the awards ceremony in front of more than 900 guests in San Francisco in October.
