The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that one of the four 2014 Bradley Prizes will be awarded to Darcy Olsen, president of the Goldwater Institute.

The award will be presented to Olsen during the 11th annual Bradley Prizes ceremony that will be held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, June 18, 2014.  Each award carries a stipend of $250,000.

Under the direction of Olsen since 2001, the Goldwater Institute has fought to protect multiple constitutional rights in state and federal courts.  Her efforts have made the organization a national leader in restoring the rights of states to exercise their authority to check federal power.

“Darcy Olsen’s leadership of the Goldwater Institute has been critical to the enactment of nearly 200 education, fiscal, and government reforms,” said Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation. “Her work is a shining example of how to limit the expansion of government and increase personal freedom.”

The selection was based on nominations solicited from more than 200 prominent individuals across the country and chosen by the Bradley Prizes Selection Committee.

“Through the Bradley Prizes, we recognize individuals like Darcy whose accomplishments strengthen American institutions, in hopes that others will strive for excellence in their respective fields,” Grebe said.
