The Human Rights Campaign of North Carolina needs your help in selecting people worthy of being honored. The group issued a press release today calling for nominees for its annual gala.
Here are the details:
The Human Rights Campaign North Carolina Gala Steering Committee is now accepting nominations for its awards and scholarships surrounding the Gala, scheduled for Feb. 25, 2012 at the Charlotte Convention Center.
"It's important that we celebrate our successes and recognize the hard work of our community," says Gala co-chair Rich Hurley. "The gala committee is excited to open the award nomination process for the 2012 HRC North Carolina Gala. We encourage everyone to nominate a person or organization they feel has made a significant impact over the past year."
Awards to be presented at the HRC NC Gala will honor individuals and organizations that have furthered the progress of civil rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered community. Nominations are now being accepted for the following honors:
The 2012 HRC NC Equality Award: an organization and an outstanding individual that has demonstrated a passion and drive to eliminate discrimination for LGBT people.
The 2012 Legacy Award: an individual who has a consistent and significant list of contributions to the LGBT community and be seen as a role model to others.
The Community Service Award: an individual or an organization that has made superior contributions at the grassroots level to issues or concerns of the LGBT community and its allies.
The application/nomination process for NC Gala scholarships and fellowships is now open as well. As an Emerging Leader Scholarship recipient, you will receive a free ticket to the dinner and you are asked to provide volunteer support at the Convention Center the day of the Gala. Also, you will be eligible for an opportunity to attend training at HRC national headquarters.
The annual HRC NC Gala aims to be inclusive, regardless of level of income and other differences. A limited number of fellowships to those who demonstrate need and would not otherwise be able to attend the dinner without financial assistance. Those receiving the fellowship can attend the Gala at a reduced dinner ticket price.
The application/nomination deadline for awards is Monday, Oct. 31, 2011. The deadline for scholarship application/nomination is Monday, Nov. 28, 2011.
