In November 2012, Tony Campolo received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Youth Worker’s Convention. The wording on the award is: Award of Lifetime Achievement is proudly presented to Tony Campolo who has defined and courageously pioneered what is means to encourage, care and lead students, possessing the qualities that inspire us and provoke us to continue the journey into the future with boldness and confidence. As a result of Tony’s life of ministry and leadership, he has left a legacy of encouragement and hope to youth workers and students everywhere. When the presentation was made, a great mention of Tony’s work with Compassion International was made and Compassion asked to be able to say thank you to Tony with this video for the lifetime of child sponsorships he has helped to make possible.
