BreakOUT! is excited to announce its selection for the 2012 Out in the Silence Award for Youth Activism!  The award was created to "encourage, highlight and honor creative and courageous young people and their work to call attention to bullying, harassment, bigotry and discrimination and to promote safe schools and inclusive communities for all" after the release of a PBS documentary called Out in the Silence.

BreakOUT! is joined by four other outstanding LGBTQ youth leaders from across the country in receiving this award, which was announced on October 11th, National Coming Out Day.

BreakOUT! will receive an honorarium of $1,000 and year-long outreach and promotional support for our work from the Out in the Silence Campaign.  Congratulations, members, for receiving this honor!
