Noa's performance at the World Food Prize Award Ceremony in Des Moines, Iowa (USA)

THE WORLD FOOD PRIZE LAUREATE AWARD CEREMONY is held in the magnificent Iowa State Capitol Building in Des Moines. The ceremony rivals that of the Nobel Prize, drawing over 800 people from more than 75 countries.

Each year, world-class performers take the stage to honor the World Food Prize Laureate. Past performers have included Ray Charles, John Denver, Chachi Tadesse, and Kathak Gunjan. Following the Ceremony, the celebration continues at the Laureate Award Dinner, held in the Capitol Rotunda.

The 2012 Laureate Award Ceremony honoring Dr. Daniel Hillel will take place on Thursday, October 18 at 7:00 p.m.  The event will be broadcast live on Iowa Public Television and available for viewing online around the globe at www.worldfoodprize.org/webcast.
