Spark Freedom’s Trendsetter Awards

Our non-profit partners do incredible things and we want to recognize them for the work they do.

The Spark Freedom Trendsetter Awards recognize creativity, execution, achievement, and overall excellence in free market communications and marketing. As the only awards program of its kind in the liberty movement, the SF Trendsetter Awards distinguish think tanks and other political organizations who set new standards for innovation in furthering the message of limited government and personal responsibility.
