  • Entrepreneurship & Business
  • Green Sustainability
  • Healthcare & Science

Youth Awards applicants and recipients will become part of HHF’s extensive network of over 300,000 professionals and be integrated into its cycle of leadership pipeline, where we meet America’s priorities in the classroom and workforce.
