AT&T and HRC Team Up for Live Proud on Campus Campaign

By |2017-08-24T18:42:58-04:00August 24th, 2017|National, News|

AT&T is working with the Human Rights Campaign to help the next generation of LGBT and allied leaders continue the fight for equality with AT&T’s first-ever Live Proud on Campus campaign.

The campaign calls on college students 18 and over to submit a video pitch describing an LGBT-supportive project they’d like to see in place at their schools. The public will vote on 15 semi-finalist videos to choose six finalists, and HRC will choose three grand prize winners, which will be announced on LGBT Spirit Day, Oct. 16.

Students can enter by submitting their video pitch to http://att.com/liveproud where details, voting guidelines and rules are listed. Submissions are open through Sept. 22.

The project must support the LGBT community and focus on LGBT equality, visibility or acceptance. The public can vote online for their favorite videos. No purchase necessary.

Three grand prize winners will receive a $10,000 scholarship and a trip to Washington D.C. to attend the HRC National Dinner in October. They’ll also win $2,500 to fund their on-campus project.

Grand prize winners will also experience a semester-long mentorship with HRC leadership. Mentors will help them plan their on-campus project during the spring 2018 semester.

Don’t forget to join the conversation on social media using #ATTLiveProud and #LiveProudScholar.
