Campus Progress / Colorlines.com Keynote Contest
The contest, which was launched in April, called on young people to speak their minds about racial and social justice for a chance to win a free trip to Washington, DC, to address the attendees at the 2011 Campus Progress National Conference.
And…this year’s winners are!
Kiara Lee from Richmond, VA: an activist, filmmaker and author who is shedding light on the realities of discrimination within ethnic groups.
Daniel Khalessi from Stanford, CA: an Iranian-American who is raising awareness about the intersection between US foreign policy and race relations at home.
Stephanie Tanny from Denver, CO: an activist who is working to combat sexual violence on college campuses.
Thanks again to everyone who submitted videos, voted on them, and helped get the word out. We are excited to see Kiara, Daniel and Stephanie speak out on a national stage. If you want to see them too, don’t forget to apply for the free Conference (if you haven’t already!)
