Hawkins has worked as a researcher and educational consultant in multiple countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and Central and South America. This award particularly honors the Global StoryBridges program that Hawkins developed and coordinates, connecting under-resourced, English-learning youth across the globe through digital technology, to learn about each other’s lives and communities through sharing videos and chats. The project improves language, literacy and technology skills of participating youth, while fostering global relationships, knowledge and citizenship

The United Nations Association of Dane County is "dedicated to educating, inspiring and mobilizing Americans to support the principles and vital work of the United Nations."

The United Nations Anniversary Luncheon will take place on Oct. 29 at Monona Terrace.  Proceeds from the luncheon will go to United Nations Association Dane County projects such as Care for the Children of Cambodia.
