One of the highlights of the International Students For Liberty Conference is the Annual Awards Presentation. In 2009, Students For Liberty began to recognize outstanding students and student groups that have distinguished themselves in the battle for liberty on campus. That tradition has continued with the awards becoming more competitive every year as more and more students demonstrate their outstanding accomplishments for liberty. Award recipients are chosen based on their hard work, organizational skills, value creation, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
This year, SFL will present awards for Student of the Year, Event of the Year, and Student Group of the Year. The awards will be presented at the International Conference on Friday, February 15th. We are proud to announce the final nominees for each of these categories below. Make sure to read more about their accomplishments and then vote for who you think is most deserving in each category. You can vote once per day.
