You -- or someone you know -- may be qualified to receive very special recognition for working for Liberty!
The Advocates for Self-Government wants to acknowledge and reward libertarian activists like you for the hard work you do to make the world a freer place.
Lights of Liberty is an Advocates program that honors libertarians who engage in vital outreach activities -- the kinds that build a strong grassroots movement. Our Lights of Liberty Awards program is designed to give much-deserved recognition to activists and to encourage more libertarians to participate in such outreach.
This year we're doing things a little differently. You qualify for a Lights of Liberty Award if you've done THREE of any combination of the following activities in 2010:
- Had a letter mentioning the word "libertarian" printed in a newspaper or magazine;
- Participated for two hours or more in one day at an Operation Politically Homeless (OPH) booth;
- Delivered a speech using the word "libertarian" to a non-libertarian audience.
If you did ANY COMBINATION of three of these activities between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010, congratulations -- you're a winner!
(What do we mean by "any combination of three of these activities?" If you did three OPH days, you're a winner. If you did one OPH, had one letter published, and did one speech, you're a winner. If you did two OPHs and did one speech, you're a winner.)
As a Lights of Liberty winner you will get:
- a handsome Lights of Liberty congratulatory certificate, suitable for framing;
- your name added to the Lights of Liberty Honor Roll on our website;
- a coupon worth 20% off your next order from our store of books, tapes, and other libertarian items;
- your name entered into a drawing for great libertarian prizes!
EVERY ACTIVITY YOU SUBMIT AUTOMATICALLY ENTERS YOU IN A DRAWING FOR OTHER GREAT PRIZES:
Every time you submit a qualifying activity, you're automatically entered in a drawing to win great prizes like classic liberty books, cutting edge outreach tools, and exclusive Advocates products.
The more you did, the better your chance to win.
WHY SHOULD YOU ENTER?
Of course, we know you didn't do these activities to win awards. But your letter, or speech, or OPH outreach shift brought the message of liberty to hundreds -- perhaps thousands! -- of people. That kind of outreach work is crucial to building a movement for liberty. We want to see more of it.
Every Lights of Liberty winner is an inspiration to others . Your name on the list will inspire others to follow your example and do more of these kinds of valuable outreach activities. And isn't that the most important prize of all?
CAN YOU ENTER SOMEONE ELSE?
Yes. If you know of someone who has done these activities, and you can verify it, please enter them. For instance, if you have done three OPH booths and you know some people who helped with the OPH booth for that same period, you can enter their names at our Lights of Liberty entry page. Help us reward vital grassroots activism for liberty!
