In November 1997, Sarah Green was nominated in the entrepreneurial category for this prestigious award. The ceremony was held at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts and included a performance of Cirque San Jose. It was attended by the group of girls from San Benito High School that Sarah was mentoring. This was the culmination of her urging them to plan for a better life and proof of the rewards that lie in store for them. This event gave them a look at a new world, a better world and proof that a child who grows up disadvantaged can overcome the obstacles and immerge triumphant.
