WASHINGTON, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On July 29, Red Alert Politics, an online publication covering political news and entertainment, honored its third annual "30 Under 30" group of young men and women who are politically active on college campuses and in their communities nationwide. Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was the keynote speaker at the event.
As one of the youngest sitting members of Congress, Rep. Amash knows that age should not serve as a barrier to having influence. Speaking to the award winners, who are all under the age of 30, he remarked, "It's up to your generation to grow the Republican Party and change it for the better. We can't do this without you, so keep following your dreams. You're off to an amazing start."
Washington Examiner Senior Political Columnist Timothy Carney also gave remarks at the private reception, encouraging the winners to "maintain your fierce independence of thought and appetite to uncover and reveal the truth."
Chris Deaton, Editor of Red Alert Politics, praised the honorees for their efforts to promote a positive dialogue and the effect they've had across the country: "The common trait shared by these '30 Under 30' honorees is their commitment to big-tent conservative causes. These impressive individuals are not only influencing conversations and actions inside circles of political power, but are using their work to engage young adults and Americans outside the Beltway."
This year's honorees were selected from a group of more than 300 nominees. Details about the 2015 nomination process will be forthcoming.
