Join America’s Future Foundation and the nation’s leading freedom-minded young professionals as we celebrate the 9th Annual Buckley Award recipients and their work to limit government and increase liberty across the United States. Meet and mingle with the this year’s winners, the esteemed selection committee, and other inspiring leaders from across the free market movement at this must attend event.

Help us celebrate the courage, service, and dedication of young professionals working to advance freedom by nominating an under 40 leader you know today! Nominations are now being accepted through Friday, August 31, 2018.

Enjoy appetizers and drinks while you network and we celebrate the positive work being done to increase opportunity, lift barriers, and unleash human potential around the country. The Awards will start promptly at 6pm, followed by the reception.

This year, we are proud to announce Richard Lorenc (executive vice president of Foundation for Economic Education), Chris Malagisi (editor-in-chief of Conservative Book Club and 2017 Buckley Award Recipient), and other soon to be announced leaders who will serve on the selection committee to determine the 2018 winners.

The Buckley Awards, originally founded and organized by the Young Conservatives Coalition from 2010-2016, began as a way to recognize outstanding young professional conservatives and libertarians for their above-and-beyond service to the liberty movement. The award is in honor of William F. Buckley, Jr., who before the age of 30 became the leader of the early conservative movement, championing fusion – a philosophy that brought together various strands of conservatism to work together to achieve political success and conserve America’s founding principles. The award ceremony is still one of the only ones that focuses on the great achievements of young professional liberty lovers. America's Future Foundation is proud to continue to honor William F. Buckley Jr.'s memory by hosting this event.

This year's Buckley Awards are cosponsored by an amazing group of organizations and individuals, also dedicated to advancing freedom across the nation:
