This was just e-mailed to me. Don't forget to nominate someone!

Dear Matt,

To paraphrase libertarian comedian and actor Denis Leary, I've got three words for you: Deadline. Outreach. Prizes.

That's right. The DEADLINE to qualify for our 2009 Lights of Liberty awards is just around the corner – December 31, 2009. The program honors libertarians who engage in OUTREACH activities. And libertarians who qualify will receive wonderful PRIZES.

Here are the details:

DEADLINE: Time is short! By Tuesday January 12, 2010, nominate yourself (or someone you know who qualifies) (http://theadvocates.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=63f22f8c7f0fc6eaaed0b4c79&id=61408f478e&e=e00a11540c). It just takes a moment!

OUTREACH: Here at the Advocates, we understand that if our movement is going to win, it's got to grow. And to grow, we've got to take the message of liberty to more people. That's why we started the Lights of Liberty program -- to encourage more libertarians to participate in more grassroots outreach activity.

You qualify if you've done any one of the following activities in 2009:

* Got three letters mentioning the word "libertarian" printed in newspapers or magazines; or...

* Participated for three days at an Operation Politically Homeless (OPH) booth; or...

* Delivered three speeches using the word "libertarian" to non-libertarian audiences.

If you've accomplished any of this between January 1, 2009 and December 31, 2009, congratulations -- you're a winner!

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 so valuable we want to make sure it gets rewarded, acknowledged, and encouraged.

Furthermore, 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.

PRIZES: If you qualify, you'll get a handsome Lights of Liberty certificate, suitable for framing; your name will be added to the honor roll on our Web site; and you'll receive a coupon worth 20% off your next order from our catalog of books, tapes, and other libertarian items.

There's more! Your name will also be placed in a drawing for free books and merchandise from the Advocates for Self-Government’s Liberty Store.
