College was the eight best years of our life.
Sadly, we ran out of money and had to quit after getting our undergrad.
But we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in the world. It’s when we met some of our best friends ever. It’s when we learned to turn procrastination into a fine art. Bust most importantly, it’s when we came out.
From now until September 22, if you’re a college student 18 and over, come up with a project detailing a way to contribute to LGBT equality, visibility, or acceptance on campus. Then, record a one-two minute video along with your name and field of study, your project idea and intended impact, and why you want to be a leader for the LGBT community.
Upload your video at att.com, and also feel free to share on social media channels with the hashtags #ATTLiveProud and #LiveProudScholar.
On September 27, semi-finalists will be announced and public voting begins. From those submissions, HRC will select and announce three winners on October 16 (LGBT Spirit Day).
Each winner will each receive a $10,000 college scholarship, a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the HRC National Dinner in October, $2,500 to bring the project idea to life, a semester-long mentorship with HRC leadership, and a tech package that includes a tablet, smart phone and device cases from AT&T.
So get to brainstorming, then get to recording. And if you’re not in college, make sure to encourage someone who is to participate.
Because our future depends greatly on the LGBT leaders of tomorrow.
