Reception and formal presentation of The Norman Borlaug Award for Field Research and Application, Endowed by the Rockefeller Foundation. The award presentation is appropriately held in the historically preserved and environmentally renovated World Food Prize Hall of Laureates. This $29.8 million project restored the century-old Des Moines Public Library and transformed it as a special tribute to Nobel Peace Prize winner and World Food Prize founder Dr. Norman E. Borlaug.

This $10,000 award recognizes exceptional, science-based achievement in international agriculture and food production by an individual under the age of 40 who has clearly demonstrated Borlaug-like intellectual courage, stamina and determination in the fight to eliminate global hunger and poverty.

Dr. Judith Rodin, President of the Rockefeller Foundation, announced during the 25th World Food Prize Laureate Award Ceremony in 2011 that the Foundation would commit $1 million to endow this annual award in honor of Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, whose early work in Mexico was supported by the Rockefeller Foundation.

Open to all 2014 Borlaug Dialogue attendees.
