Lisa Sales loves her job. A Booz Allen Hamilton cybersecurity program manager and strategic communications consultant to defense and intel clients by day, she has a passion for applying her expertise to transform lives in her community. Most recently, that meant helping 17-year-old Elizabeth O’Brien, the first-ever winner of the Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Award for Military Children, in her mission to meet the needs of children with disabilities in the military community.
"It's both empowering and humbling to know that I’m impacting the lives of military children with illness and disability through my advice and expertise,” says Lisa. “I was proud be part of the planning for the next phase of Elizabeth's mission and encourage a new generation of innovators.”
“Winning the Booz Allen Innovation Award was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. ”
- Elizabeth O'Brien, winner of the 2016 Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Award for Military Children
Elizabeth started volunteering at a young age. When she was 14, she noticed that some disabled kids at Fort Bragg didn’t have accommodations at their base housing to meet their needs. Insurance didn’t cover it and families couldn’t afford it. With the help of Military Missions in Action (MMIA), she established the Military Child Access Assistance & Development Program (MCAADP)—at age 14—and created a 5K hike to raise funds to build accessibility ramps
Elizabeth is just one of many military kids who create innovative solutions to address challenges in their communities. A stuffed bear that kids can hold while having an MRI to make the scans less scary, community gardens grown and harvested by kids and proceeds donated to shelters, solutions for the global water crisis—these ideas were conceived and put in motion by children from military families.
They have the vision and passion to not only see the problem, but do something about it. In late 2015 Booz Allen asked itself, “What more can we be doing to support military and veteran families?
Booz Allen demonstrates its thought leadership and passionate service by promoting sustainable military service through the physical, psychological, and emotional wellbeing of service members, veterans, and military families. We wanted to share our own innovation roadmap with the next generation.
Together with longtime not-for-profit partner Operation Homefront, we created the Booz Allen Hamilton Innovation Award for Military Children, to be given to a military child who has created an innovative community program or nonprofit. Our award is part of the larger Military Child of the Year (MCOY) Awards, an Operation Homefront program recognizing outstanding military children of all branches, as well as wounded warriors "demonstrating resiliency, leadership, and achievement."
“Booz Allen is committed to shining a spotlight on the creativity, commitment, and compassion of military families.”
Most military children move eight times before they graduate high school. That means they rarely get opportunities to be recognized for their achievements or build a community of supporters for scholarships and other college-readiness opportunities.
"Booz Allen is committed to shining a spotlight on the creativity, commitment, and compassion of military families, and we thought a great way to do that is recognize the contributions they are making in their communities," Laurie adds.
Booz Allen’s Innovation Award is now a permanent part of the MCOY program. Nominees' projects are judged on impact, scalability and of course, innovation.
“Winning the Booz Allen Innovation Award was one of the most amazing experiences of my life,” says Elizabeth, now an 18-year-old college student. “It’s nice to be recognized, but more importantly, because of this award, more children with disabilities will receive help and attention to their needs.”
As an Innovation Award winner, Elizabeth received a cash award, a trip to Booz Allen’s Innovation Center in DC, and the support of a volunteer project team that helped her map out what’s next for her program. The result is a unique, cross-sector effort to provide disabled military children with their own leadership, service, and social opportunities in the community.
Lisa led the team that helped Elizabeth: “We were proud to grow Elizabeth's mission to create safe, accessible, social-inclusion activities for children requiring special accommodations."
Seventeen-year-old Sophie Bernstein is the newest Innovation Award winner for her sustainable food program. Elizabeth hopes the Sophie has just as amazing an experience as she has had working with Booz Allen’s people.
“I feel the love and support from everyone that has worked on the Innovation Award program and my project team,” Elizabeth says. “They still check in on me, not only to talk about my program, but just to see how I’m doing in college. I love that.”
