The Lavender Awards celebrate the wonderful achievements of UMBC's LGBTQ+ graduating seniors, graduate students, and their allies. We recognize students as well as the allied alums, staff, faculty, and programs that work to support them. Although we may not be able to host our Seventh Annual Lavender Awards on campus this semester, we can still honor the contributions of some of our most dedicated and committed LGBTQ+ community members.
In the midst of all of the changes and challenges that 2020 has put upon us, we invite you to take some time out of your day to acknowledge and celebrate the good by nominating your peers and or colleagues for a Lavender Award. The award categories are: Emerging LGBTQ+ Student Leader, Service to the LGBTQ+ Community, Outstanding LGBTQ+ Ally, LGBTQ+ Student of the Year and the Lavender Legacy Award.
A committee of 5 members has been formed to review all of the submitted nominations and vote on the awardees. Please help us recognize the achievements of our LGBTQ+ graduating seniors, graduate students and their allies by submitting your nominaton(s) by May 8th at 11:59pm. If you are a graduating senior or graduate student, you may also use this link to receive a lavender cord. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Heidy George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many thanks in advance for your help as we acknowledge and celebrate some of our best and brightest.
