Tea Party Movement Won the Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship

This is a posting from Bill Hennesy on the St. Louis Tea Party website:

"Today I received a package from The Heritage Foundation containing this certificate.

From the forwarding letter:

It is our pleasure to award the 2010 Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship to the citizen-patriots of the Tea Party Movement.
Previous recipients of the Prize included author David McCullogh (2009), Princeton University professor Robert P. George (2008), and the founders of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies (2007).
This year, because of the significance of the Tea Party movement—brining America’s first principles to the fore of public policy debate, motivating million of their fellow Americans to get involved in the effort to revive those principles, and reinvigorating the larger movement in the United States to reorient American politics toward those principles—the 2010 Henry Salvatori Prize for American Citizenship has been awarded to the Tea Party movement, and honors all those American citizens nationwide who are newly committed to the renewal of American liberty.
Appropriate for a spontaneous, nationwide movement, the Prize does not recognize any one individual or group. Instead, the award will be used to deepen a commitment to and advocacy of America’s first principles through the popular distribution of pocket Constitutions and educational materials.
Folks, I have tears in my eyes as I write this. The Heritage Foundation has been a curator of American political thinking all my adult life. The Heritage Foundation produced Reagan’s kitchen cabinet, and it supplies our pocket Constitutions for the Liberty Evangelism project, now in fifteen states and growing."
Bill requests that fellow Tea Partiers follow the Link below and leave a Comment accepting this award and to also Download a Jpeg of the Certificate that you can print out and Display in your Home.
