In the spring of 2004, our colleagues at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation launched the Templeton Freedom Awards Program as a means of creating virtuous competitions that will improve the effectiveness of think tanks; reward those making the greatest contributions and those with the most future promise; and provide them with positive publicity and funding to develop their visibility and expand their program activities.

Atlas also launched the Templeton Freedom Prizes for Excellence in Promoting Liberty to enhance and expand its existing efforts to help those who are changing the world for the better. These Prizes are granted in four areas - Free Market Solutions to Poverty; Ethics and Values; Social Entrepreneurship; and Student Outreach.

The Heritage Foundation was privileged to welcome five (out of fifteen) of the Templeton Freedom Award Grant Winners and five (out of eight) of the Templeton Freedom Award Prize Winners to our headquarters in Washington, D.C. on May 4, 2004. Featured in these program segments are five-minute presentations from our leading colleagues around the world on the work for which their institutes were honored. We share their belief in the power and consequences of ideas and we congratulate them on their special recognition.
