Announcing the 2011 Campus Progress/Colorlines.com Keynote Contest!
Today, Campus Progress and Colorlines.com announced the 2011 National Keynote Contest -- a call for young people to speak their minds about racial and social justice for a chance to address over 1,000 young people at the 2011 Campus Progress National Conference, July 6 in Washington, DC.
To enter, contestants are asked to submit a 1-3 minute long video addressing the question:
“In your own life, how are you changing the rules of our race conversation, and creating real solutions for racial and social justice?”
This is the second time Campus Progress has run a keynote contest in support of the National Conference. Last year’s winners included an undocumented student activist on immigration, a young man once caught up in gang violence who now advocates for peace, and a first-generation college student working to bring young people to the table in discussions about policies that impact their lives.
It’s our hope that the contest will serve as a way to amplify the voices of motivated young people across the country that are making a difference on important issues, and inspire those around them to get involved as well.
