The next generation of LGBT and allied leaders will continue the fight for equality with help from AT&T’s first-ever Live Proud on Campus campaign.
The campaign called on college students 18 and over to submit a video pitch describing an LGBT-supportive project they would like to see in place at their schools. The public voted on fifteen semi-finalists, and HRC selected 3 grand prize winners. Each received a $2,500 grant to execute their proposals, a $10,000 scholarship, a new tablet and smartphone, and a trip to Washington D.C.
Watch the grand prize winners submission videos:
- Amy Kelley, University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania
- Leyth Swiden, Columbia University in New York
- Ryan Wells, Elon University in North Carolina
Additionally, AT&T is also contributing $25,000 to HRC. The gift will support the organization and their continued efforts to uplift the LGBT community.
