The National Constitution Center has set a date and time for interested parties to reserve tickets to the 2013 Liberty Medal presentation, which will feature one potential 2016 presidential candidate presenting the medal to another.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, a republican, will present former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, a democrat, with the prestigious award at the Sept. 10 event.

Tickets to the ceremony, which are free, “will be available to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis,” according to a news release.

Starting at 10 a.m. on Aug. 6,  tickets can be reserved through Ticketmaster at 866-492-6326. Two tickets per household.

National Constitution Center members can call 866-492-6326 on Aug. 5 at 10 a.m. to order tickets. Members are also limited to two tickets per household.

The Liberty Medal, which will be presented for the 25th consecutive time, will be awarded to Clinton in recognition of “her lifelong career in public service and her ongoing advocacy efforts on behalf of women and girls around the globe.”

Previous recipients of the award, which was established in commemoration of the bicentennial of the U.S. Constitution, include former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush, Muhammad Ali, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair and Nelson Mandela.
