AT&T Announces Winners Of "Live Proud On Campus" Scholarship Contest


In August, I wrote about AT&T's first-ever Live Proud on Campus scholarship contest.

The contest called on college students 18+ to submit a video pitch for an LGBT-supportive project they'd like to see at their schools.

The public voted on 15 semi-finalist videos, narrowing the field down to 6 finalists, and the Human Rights Campaign chose the 3 grand prize winners. To watch their submission video click on the hyperlinks.

Amy Kelley (University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania)
Leyth Swidan (Columbia University in New York)
Ryan Wells (Elon University in North Carolina)

The winning projects support the LGBT community and focus on LGBT equality, visibility and/or acceptance on college campuses.

Each of the winning students will receive a $10,000 scholarship, $2,500 in funding to execute their campus project, a semester-long mentorship experience with HRC to help develop their projects, and more.

Additionally, the winners will also be flown to Washington, D.C. to attend the HRC National Dinner on Oct. 28.

But wait - there's more! AT&T is will also contribute $25,000 to the Human Rights Campaign to support their continued efforts to uplift the LGBT community.

Big thanks to AT&T for the awesome support.
