2018 GLSEN Phoenix Awards

First initiated in 2015, the annual GLSEN Phoenix Awards aim to bring into the spotlight those students, educators, and individuals who have made a significant impact on the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) youth and their allies in the Greater Phoenix community.

Four nominees will be honored at the 2018 Sparkle Glitter GLSEN Fundraiser and Award Ceremony to be held on November 15, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at Memorial Hall at Steele Indian School Park.

 

TWO AWARDS OPEN FOR NOMINATION BY THE COMMUNITY

The Sean Nonnenmacher GSA of the Year Award

In acknowledgement of his incredible contribution towards shaping GLSEN Phoenix's student organizing work with student-led clubs across Maricopa County, the Sean Nonnenmacher GSA of the Year Award is presented to the Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club which represents the ideals of GLSEN Phoenix and our mission to ensure that each student in every K-12 school is valued and treated with respect, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. This award honors an outstanding group of young people whose efforts have helped ensure a safe learning environment for all students—and have served as a voice of change in their own school community.

The Dr. Eileen Yellin Safe Schools Advisor Award

In recognition of the late Dr. Eileen Yellin of Tempe High School, the Dr. Eileen Yellin Safe Schools Advisor Award is presented to a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) Advisor who has gone above and beyond to foster safe and inclusive spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer or questioning (LGBTQ) youth in schools. The Safe Schools Advisor Award recognizes outstanding leadership as well as a long-standing commitment to ensuring LGBTQ youth can reach their fullest potential.
