CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Campus Pride has announced that it is accepting applications for its Voice & Action National Student Leader Award and its Voice and Action National Advisor Award.

Deadline is Dec. 10, which is an extension for both categories that were due in late November or early December.

The organization states that the Voice & Action National Leadership Award program embodies its mission, values and vision for inclusion and recognition of young adult leaders. The annual awards are an honorary national recognition program highlighting the accomplishments of LGBT and ally young adult leaders and those who work to support LGBT issues at colleges and universities across the U.S. The recognition program is the only honor of its kind, focused on the work of undergraduate college students who are creating positive change for LGBT and ally issues within their campus communities, local communities and region of the country.

Campus Pride bestows the awards upon individuals who use their “voice” to speak up and take “action” to make a difference. The award program also acknowledges the vital role nationally that young adult leaders play in the movement for LGBT equality.
