2009 Laureate Announcement Ceremony with Secretary Hillary Clinton

In June 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton provided keynote remarks at the Laureate Announcement Ceremony held at the U.S. State Department in Washington D.C. Ambassador Quinn revealed the name of Dr. Gebisa Ejeta of Ethiopia as the new Laureate. World Food Prize Chairman, John Ruan III and Janis Ruan participated in the event, as did US Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack. The event was particularly notable for the fact that Secretary Clinton made the first ever public announcement about the Obama Administration Feed the Future Initiative, which became a multi-billion dollar endeavor.
