For many, a mentor or a book opened their minds to the possibilities of a free society. For others, an affinity toward liberty happened through experience. As I discovered during the recent Atlas Network Liberty Forum, a great many leaders in today’s worldwide liberty movement did these things along with attending a FEE seminar.
FEE, the Foundation for Economic Education, has been prompting that “ah ha!” moment in people for decades, and now works exclusively to light the flame of liberty in the hearts of high school and college students.
Now FEE is calling on you. Are you a FEE alumnus or alumna whose worldview was changed for the better through a FEE seminar? Are you an entrepreneur or liberty movement leader who once interned at FEE? Have you been a loyal reader of The Freeman magazine?
We want to hear from you. Send us a short note with your contact information and the program and year you attended FEE so we can cite your success.
And for those particularly accomplished among FEE alumni, we invite nominations for the inaugural Leonard E. Read Distinguished Alumni Award. Named after FEE’s founder and teacher to many, this award recognizes one alumnus or alumna who has made a particularly strong impact for liberty. The award will be given at a dinner following FEE’s Inspire, Educate & Connect Summit in Naples, Florida on February 1st, 2014. The award includes a $2,000 cash prize and recognition among the more than 10,000 FEE alumni.
Nominations are open now through December 6th, 2013, so feel an urgent sense of unease and act now!
Richard Lorenc is the Director of Programs and Alumni Relations at the Foundation for Economic Freedom.
