Learn about the 2014 Campus Pride Voice & Action National Student Leader Award

Campus Pride has recognized outstanding LGBT and ally student leaders since 2008 with the Voice & Action National Student Leader Award (undergraduate students).  Every year Campus Pride hopes to honor at least one outstanding young adult in each region of the country. The individual receives the official Voice & Action Award from Campus Pride.

Top 12 Leaders in Action

Campus Pride selects another national distinction to the Voice & Action award process by selecting the “Top 12 Leaders in Action.” The Top 12 will be acknowledged nationally for the distinction along with the Voice & Action Award recipient(s). Out of the Top 12, the selection committee will choose the Voice & Action Award recipient(s) each year.

Criteria for Recipients

The Voice and Action Award will be awarded to any current undergraduate student who is enrolled at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States of America. Each recipient must be in good academic standing at the respective campuses (as defined by the college/university). The Voice and Action Award can be awarded to any undergraduate student who is enrolled for the Fall of that year when applying and/or the Spring of the following year at an accredited institution of higher education in the United States of America. A complete application must be received on/before the deadline.

Decision Process

Any undergraduate student who meets the aforementioned criteria may complete the Voice & Action Award application form and submit by the deadline. You do not need to be nominated; however, the application form must be accompanied by a resume, and letters of recommendation. Campus Pride will organize a selection committee of student leaders from each region along with select national authorities on LGBT issues.
