At least 35 Indian-American/South Asian youth will receive 2018 Congressional Award gold medals from the U.S. Congress. This annual ceremony will celebrate nearly 400 of America’s most deserving youth who have dedicated years of goal-setting and determination to earn Congress’ highest honor. The gold medal ceremony will take place in Washington, D.C., on June 21st, followed by an event for the medalists and their families on June 22nd.

The Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom are the highest civilian awards in the United States.

The nine gold medalists from Georgia this year include 6th Congressional District’s Sravya Ambadipudi of Johns Creek and Dilan Shah of Milton, and 7th District’s Vani Senthil of Duluth.
