Adarsha Shivakumar Wins the 2009 Brower Youth Awards

Youth receive Brower Awards for environmental work
October 19th, 2009
By Harriet Blake

As the Nobel Prize Committee noted in awarding President Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize last week, the world is in a better place than it was a year ago.
The world also is in a better place thanks to six young people who are being honored on Tuesday for their heroic environmental efforts. The 2009 Brower Youth Awards, sponsored by Earth Island Institute, will be given to:

•Sierra Crane-Murdoch, 21, of Vermont, for helping unite the movement to fight coal.
•Adarsha Shivakumar, 16, of California, who has put into place a biofuel solution in rural India.
•Diana Lopez, 20, of Texas, who started an organic food source in San Antonio.
•Hai Vo, 22, of California, for transforming food purchasing at the University of California.
•Robin Bryan, 21, of Manitoba, whose project protects 1 million acres of forest in Canada from industrial logging.
•Alec Loorz, 15, of California, who initiated Kids vs. Global Warming and is the youngest presenter of Al Gore’s “The Climate Project.”

Each award recipient will receive a $3,000 cash prize and be recognized at 10th annual Brower Youth Awards Gala in San Francisco. The Earth Island Institute, which sponsors the Brower Youth Awards, is a nonprofit group that recognizes people who come up with solutions to protect the planet. The common thread that connects the six winners is their youthful idealism and shared passion.

  5. Hey Adarsha,
    I am not sure if you remember me, I am Pat From Berkeley High. I spoke to you briefly at the forum. As I had requested, I need help, ideas for a green project at our class. How can I reach you? Can I get your number? I tried asking some of the CPS students or may be they are not from your school on the award ceremony so that we can talk more. But no luck. I like your energy and enthusiasm. You are my Hero. I want to work under your mentorship. Good luck and please contact me ASAP>
