The Golden Plate is an annual award presented by the Academy of Achievement to accomplished individuals for significant achievement in their fields.[1] Since the Academy's establishment in 1961, numerous honorees have received the award, including Nobel Prize winners, presidents, scientists, athletes, authors and entertainers.[2] According to the Academy, each year 20 awardees are chosen by an awards council composed of past recipients of the "Golden Plate".[3][4]

The Golden Plate awards are presented at the Banquet of the Golden Plate ceremonies. The Golden Plate ceremony is the culminating event of the annual International Achievement Summit. The first awards ceremony was held on September 9, 1961 in Monterey, California.[5] The inspiration for the naming of the Banquet of the Golden Plate was the gold plate service "used only on very special occasions" at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco in the 1920s.[5][6] At this event, the Academy awarded the "Golden Plate" to individuals chosen by a national board of governors for their contributions as leaders in science, the arts, public service, sports and industry.[7]

The first honorees were chosen by a national board of governors and included Charles Mayo, Willard F. Libby, and Wernher von Braun. Edward Teller gave the keynote speech.[5][7] The second annual Banquet of the Golden Plate was held in San Diego, California on December 29, 1962. Among the guests of honor in 1962 were Murray Gell-Mann, Robert Stack and Rafer Johnson. Louis Nizer gave the keynote speech.[8] The 50th anniversary Banquet of the Golden Plate was held in Washington, D.C. on October 27, 2012. The guests of honor at the 2012 Summit included Leon Panetta, Eric Holder, Sonia Sotomayor, Ray Dalio, David Petraeus, David Brooks and Louise Glück.[9]

The Academy's mission is to recognize outstanding achievement in a variety of fields, including the arts, business, science, politics and the humanities.[1][10] The organization also aims to provide inspiration and encouragement to young people to reach a high level in their careers and personal interests by bringing them into contact with successful individuals.[11][12] According to The Press-Enterprise, the organization's founder Brian Reynolds wanted the Academy to teach young people about "adversity and how to overcome it".[13]

Several hundred graduate students from the U.S. and overseas attend the "International Achievement Summit" each year. The summits were originally attended by high school students chosen based on their academic achievement and extracurricular activities.[11][14][15] More recently, the graduate student attendees of the International Achievement Summit have been selected from a roster of recipients of scholarship and exchange programs including Rhodes, Fulbright, Truman, Gates Cambridge, Marshall, Soros,[16] Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Fellows[17] and White House Fellows and faculty nominations from leading universities. A select group of student delegates have returned to the International Achievement Summit as recipients of the Golden Plate Award, including [18]Eric Lander, Lisa Randall,[12]Sergey Brin and [12]Larry Page.
