Evangelium Vitae Medal
The Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal is the nation's most important lifetime achievement award for heroes in the pro-life movement, honoring individuals whose outstanding efforts have served to proclaim the Gospel of Life by steadfastly affirming and defending the sanctity of human life from its earliest stages. Announced annually on Respect Life Sunday (the first Sunday of October), the Evangelium Vitae Medal consists of a specially commissioned medal and $10,000 prize, which is presented at a spring banquet.
The Center for Ethics and Culture will announce the 2018 Notre Dame Evangelium Vitae Medal honoree on October 1, 2017.
