Thank you for taking time to nominate a Queer Youth, an Ally to Queer Youth or an Organizational Ally to Queer Youth! Online nominations are easy to complete.
The Queer Youth Leadership Awards recognizes queer youth and allies across Santa CruzCounty for being leaders within their community. Being a leader encompasses many attributes and spans across all disciplines and activities.
If you know an out LGBTIQ youth or an Ally who is making a difference by standing out, being proud and being true to themselves, nominate them for a Queer Youth Leadership Award or an Ally to Queer YouthAward. If you know of an outstanding organization that serves queer youth, nominate them for an Organizational Ally to Queer YouthAward.
Recognizing youth community leaders and their allies is important. Please consider reading the Santa Cruz Sentinel Op-ed by Lex on why it is important to nominate community leaders.
