Harry Leibowitz grew up in humble beginnings in Brooklyn, New York – throughout World War II and into the early 1950’s his family lived in an old bungalow in Coney Island where ten families shared the common bathroom facilities and he began working long hours upon becoming a teenager. Through these experiences, he developed an incredible work ethic and an appreciation for the plight of children born into challenging circumstances.
Harry went on to enjoy a successful business career, and with years of business travels around the world Harry observed firsthand the plight of children in developing countries and made a lasting impression. In 1996, Harry had a vision for the World of Children Award when he was recovering from cancer surgery at age 55. Watching the Pulitzer Prize announcements on TV, he noted that while there was a Pulitzer for art and literature, and a Nobel for the sciences and peace, and an Oscar for films, there were no awards for those who were tirelessly serving children in need.
That realization was a catalyst for Harry, and he subsequently founded the World of Children Award with vital support from Starr Commonwealth. A decade later, Harry now devotes all his time to running the World of Children Award – serving as Board Chair and visiting the World of Children Award’s Honorees around the globe.
