The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee has announced that the 2016 Bradley Prizes will be awarded at a ceremony at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, June 15.  The Bradley Prizes honor thinkers, intellectuals and leaders whose accomplishments reflect the mission of the Bradley Foundation.

The 2016 Bradley Prize recipients will begin to be announced shortly.  Each Bradley Prize includes a $250,000 stipend for each recipient. 

A selection committee of distinguished individuals selected this year's honorees.  It includes:  Princeton University professor and previous Bradley Prize recipient Robert P. George, who served on the Bradley Foundation's Board of Directors; former U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic and Bradley Foundation Board member Richard W. Graber; scholar, author, Bradley Prize recipient and Bradley Board member Victor Davis Hanson; University of Pennsylvania professor and Bradley Prize recipient Alan Charles Kors; Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and Bradley Prize recipient Charles Krauthammer; Dennis J. Kuester, former chairman and chief executive officer of the M&I Corporation and chairman of Bradley's Board; Bradley Foundation senior program officer Dianne J. Sehler; Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and Bradley Prize recipient George F. Will; and Bradley Foundation president and chief executive officer Michael W. Grebe, who chaired the Selection Committee.

"These exceptional individuals have examined nearly 200 nominations of many outstanding individuals with extensive records of accomplishment in a number of fields," Grebe said.  "Their guidance and diligence in this process has produced the result of four deserving honorees, whose accomplishments reflect the values of the Bradley Foundation."

The annual Bradley Prizes ceremony has become established as a highly regarded celebration of distinguished leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to the spread of freedom.
