Making the Prize
“I think it’s extremely important to have an award that celebrates the achievements of a number of people that have made a difference in the lives of others.”

“Don't ever let anyone tell you that you can't make a difference—that you can't solve a problem that feels unsolvable in one generation alone—because I'm here to tell you that you can.”
