Six schools from Mexico, Colombia and Argentina have been awarded with a Templeton Prize for Best Practice in Character Education in Latin America. The winners are Liceo Thezia, Chapultepec, Sistema de Colegios México Nuevo (Mexico), Colsubsidio Ciudadela, Nueva Granada (Colombia) and Monseñor Audino Rodríguez y Olmos (Argentina).

Each award corresponded to a monetary prize of 1,200 Euros and included a trip to the International Conference 'Character Education: Challenges and Opportunites' that took place in Pilar, Argentina (13-14 June 2018).

The Templeton Character Education in Latin America Awards seek to recognize character education projects in secondary schools that motivate teachers to become involved in them and understand their value, through the dissemination of good practices.

Character Education is also understood as moral education, social education, education in virtues, and civic education.

The awards are sponsored by the “Researching and promoting character education in Latin America secondary schools” project, which is a joint initiative of the University of Navarra’s School of Education and Psychology and the Institute for Culture and Society. It receives funding from the Templeton World Charity Foundation.
