This year, as part of our campaign to help motivate everyone to Step Up, Step Out, we are recognizing the special contributions of our youth to the march for equality.
Every year, we choose a Grand Marshall who has proven his or her ability to Step Up, Step Out. This year we have chosen Doug Frank to serve as our Grand Marshall.
Besides Doug, we would also like to honor those who we believe will be Stepping Up and Stepping Out in the near future. Thus the Youth Recognition Awards were created.
Know of a youth you think fits our criteria (18 years of age or older and a role model to their peers)? Nominate them for the award: http://www.alaskapride.org/documents/2011YouthNomination.pdf
Nominations are due THIS Friday.
