2021 Gold Medal Ceremony
July 30, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
The Gold Medal Ceremony will recognize 518 young people across 42 states for their commitment to bettering themselves and the communities around them. Each medalist has contributed at least 400 hours of Voluntary Public Service, 200 hours of Personal Development, and 200 hours of Physical Fitness over the course of at least 2 years. In addition, each medalist has planned and executed a 5-day, 4-night Expedition or Exploration trip to break out of their comfort zones.
This year, the virtual event will include interactive workshops on a range of topics including mental health, financial literacy, STEM, entrepreneurship, and professional development. These workshops will allow the medalists to hear from Members of Congress and experts on the topics of their choosing, then participate in live breakout groups to dive in a little further and meet their fellow Congressional Awardees. While the range of topics is diverse, each session will focus on the bright futures ahead in their respective spaces.
