Last year, Young Voices launched what we aim to be an annual recognition of excellence in pro-liberty advocacy for writers under 30: the Young Voices Award. I am thrilled to announce the nominees for the 2019 Young Voices Award, to be given away at our Third Anniversary Party on Thursday, May 2nd in Washington, DC.
The nominees are: Matthew Larosiere, Molly Davis, and Jerrod Laber. All three have served as Young Voices contributors for over a year, securing prominent media placements discussing important issues of our day.
As part of their candidacy, each finalist submitted writing samples to be sent to a panel of judges for picking the winner. Here’s some of their best Young Voices hits:
- Matthew Larosiere — “What Will Happen When People Can 3-D Print Their Own Guns?,” published in Playboy on July 31, 2018
- Molly Davis — “Utah Just Became a Leader in Digital Privacy,” published in Wired on March 22, 2019
- Jerrod Laber — “The Moral Conceit of Our Post-9/11 Politics,” published in The American Conservative on September 12, 2018
The winner will be selected by a panel of noted judges in journalism: Katherine Mangu-Ward, editor-in-chief of Reason magazine, Matt Kibbe, president of Free the People, and Kristen Soltis Anderson, Washington Examiner columnist.
I hope you can join us to celebrate Young Voices’ network of writers and raise a toast to the winner next week!
