Voice & Action National Student Leader Award
2013 Voice and Action Student Leader Award Application
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 as well as a free artist/speaker/entertainer to bring to his/her campus from our educational partner OUTmedia. Lists of available speakers/entertainers will be provided by OUTmedia. The speakers/entertainers must be booked the following academic year prior to the next regional conference. Honoraria for the artist/speaker/entertainer is waived; however, the campus must fund travel, hotel, tech arrangements, etc. Certain other restrictions may also apply as far as availability in the specific region of the country.
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.
