Peter Eberhardt invented the Oregon Blackberry Award to recognize people making a difference in the cultures and communities of Oregon. Taking the Nobel Prize as its inspiration, the Blackberry Award is local and presented more frequently. Awardees are chosen by the Oregon Blackberry Trust, a group of friends committed to progressive social change, good conversations and fun.
