#Awards and #Wikidata

When people are awarded for their accomplishments, it is proof positive of their notability. The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences is in the news because the awards for 2014 have been announced.

At this time, Wikidata has a complete list of all the award winners. All these people are known to be human, their sex has been defined and obviously they are known to be the winner they are. Obviously there is more to be known about all of them.

There is no category for these award winners yet. The content of such a category could be defined by the result of a query; it might include local red-links but it does include all the winners of this award.
