Ulla Tørnæs, Danish Minister of Science and Higher Education will present the winner of the Danish American Frontier Award during this gala event at the landmark Mark Hopkins in San Francisco.

The Danish American Frontier Award is the most prestigious honor awarded by the Danish American community in the western United States.

The DAF Award is presented to a person or group of persons who have distinguished themselves by their actions, exploration or presence in areas of leadership, business, commerce, service, science, technology, invention, arts or humanitarian ventures. The recipient will have exhibited daring curiosity in their pursuits, often standing alone in their convictions, while maintaining integrity throughout their enterprise.

The DAF Award celebrates the pioneer spirit with which Danish-Americans have explored, and are still exploring the boundaries of themselves, their enterprise and their world today and actively shape the world of the future.

The recipient is honored with a statuette by the Danish-American sculptor, Dennis Smith, depicting Peter Lassen, the most important of early Danish-American pioneers and frontiersmen. The statuette is handmade and numbered exclusively for recipients of the award.
