The annual awards are an honorary national recognition program highlighting the outstanding accomplishments of LGBTQ and ally young adult leaders and those who work to support LGBTQ issues at colleges and universities across the United States. The recognition program is the only honor of its kind, focused on the work of undergraduate college students who are creating positive change for LGBTQ and ally issues within their campus communities, local communities and region of the country.
