Thirty Under Thirty

851x315 banner_honorees

The Red Alert Politics fourth annual “30 Under 30” list highlights young, right-of-center people who are making a difference on their campuses and in their communities. The people on this list were selected for their passion, their dedication to conservative principles even in the face of opposition, and for their influence across the country.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the nomination process. We chose to exclude staff members at our sister publications (The Weekly Standard, The Washington Examiner) from consideration. We also opted not to include previous winners in this year’s list in order to give other young leaders the opportunity to shine.

To help feature this year’s honorees, names will be unveiled 10 at a time, chosen randomly, on a rolling basis. The announcements will be made July 10, July 17, and July 24.
