The Connie Brown Freedom Award
Each year at the Platte Institute Legislative Summit, our staff recognizes a Nebraskan who has taken action to remove barriers to growth and opportunity in Nebraska by honoring them with the Connie Brown Freedom Award.
Connie Brown was a passionate Platte Institute volunteer who left us too soon. We present this annual award in her name to inspire other Nebraskans to take a stand for individual liberty.
The Platte Institute staff welcomes nominations for the annual Connie Brown Freedom Award.
