In 2017, the European Commission launched an EU-wide contest for a prestigious “Altiero Spinelli Prize for Outreach: Spreading Knowledge about Europe”. The prize was open to individuals or groups of individuals (natural persons) who was able contribute, through their projects, to articulating what Europe stands for today and tomorrow and why European citizens should "fall in love with Europe" despite its imperfections. The prize was divided in six first prizes, six second prizes, ten third prizes.
The project on the Founding Mothers of Europe has received a second prize. The awards ceremony will probably take place in May 2018.
