Nominations are now closed, and winners will be announced soon!  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: Platinum Sponsors DonorsTrust’s Novus Society Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program Young America's Foundation Gold Sponsor Charles Koch Institute Silver Sponsors American Enterprise Institute The Fund for American Studies Hillsdale College’s Kirby Center Leadership Institute Students for Liberty Young Voices Individual Sponsor Chaz Cirame Joey Goetz If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the Buckley Awards, please contact Cindy Cerquitella at or 202.331.2261.
