Rising Star Awards
Each December, Future Caucus recognizes a bipartisan group of young legislators for their future-focused leadership and political bridge-building.
Each December, Future Caucus recognizes legislators for effective, bipartisan leadership during our annual Rising Star Awards.
The Rising Star Award highlights young leaders—one Republican and one Democrat—and their contributions to the State Future Caucus Network (SFCN) over the last year. It aims to recognize lawmakers who embody Future Caucus’ vision of transcending political tribalism. The Rising Star Award honors leaders who take initiative in shepherding bipartisan legislation that addresses priority issues in today’s political climate.
The Cherisse Eatmon Collective Impact Award recognizes an outstanding state caucus for their future-focused leadership and political bridge-building.
Nominees are selected based on their efforts in promoting political collaboration within their state.
