Our Faces: Our Youth Tell Us Their Stories
The Stonewall National Museum & Archives is offering a cash award for the best college creation of an exhibition on any aspect of American lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) history and culture. The Our Faces exhibition will tour the country in corporations, schools, nonprofits and other locations.
The college proposals for submission will be reviewed by a panel of national judges from community and corporate life. These same individuals will determine the finalists. Invitations are being sent to the professors of gay studies programs in universities throughout the United States.
Exhibitions that are accepted for the competition can consist of Videos, PowerPoint Slides, Panels and other creative Audio-Visual means. The expense of the creation of the exhibition entry will be handled by the college and/or students. The expense of the final traveling exhibit will be covered by Stonewall National Museum & Archives.
