2008-03-05

Windy City Times is seeking to recognize 30 more outstanding LGBT individuals ( and allies ) who are under 30 years of age.

In 2000, Windy City Times established an award to acknowledge the young movers and shakers of the LGBT community: the 30 Under 30 Awards. Thirty young activists, journalists, students, HIV/AIDS volunteers and performers who were each under the age of 30 were honored for their achievements in moving the LGBT community forward. Each year since, another 30 get their day in the sun.

Nominees should be under 30 years of age and should have made some substantial contributions to the LGBT community, whether in the fields of entertainment, politics, health and/or other areas. ( The deadline to nominate individuals is Fri., April 25. )

Read more story below....

Individuals themselves, organizations, co-workers, etc. can nominate a person by sending an e-mail or fax to WCMG. The nomination should be 100 words or less and should state what achievements or contributions the nominee has made. Nominators should include their own names and contact information as well as the contact information of the nominee. Those nominations can be sent to Andrew@WindyCityMediaGroup.com or faxed to Andrew Davis' attention to 773-871-7609.

( NOTE: Following the policy instituted in 2005 that individuals can only win once, those have won the award since that year are ineligible for this year's awards. )

Honorees will be notified in May and recognized at a ceremony in June.
