Nolan Gray Wins Young Voices Award

Last weekend, Young Voices teamed up with the Reason Foundation to recognize an excellent libertarian writer under 30 at FreedomFest in Las Vegas. I’m happy to announce that the first winner of the Young Voices Award is Nolan Gray. Nolan joined Young Voices is April 2017 as a graduate student studying city planning at Rutger’s University. Young Voices worked with Nolan to tailor his writings on market urbanism to mainstream outlets, getting him published in CityLab, a division of The Atlantic. Thanks in part to our help, Nolan’s profile quickly rose as one of the rising stars in his field. Just this month, he announced his new job as a planner for the City of New York. Nolan stands as Young Voices’ strongest example of how our media mentorship can lead to potential real-life policy consequences. Congratulations!

If you know a talented young writer like Nolan, please encourage him or her to apply to Young Voices. But don’t wait — the deadline is July 31st!
