Chicago – In 2000, Windy City Times established an award to acknowledge the young movers and shakers of the GLBT community: the 30 Under 30 Awards. Thirty young activists, journalists, students, HIV/AID volunteers and performers each under the age of 30 were honored for their achievements in moving the GLBT community forward. Five years later in 2005 another 30 will get their honors on Wednesday, June 8 at the Hilton Chicago.
With more nominations coming in than previous years, it shows that there are many young people working everyday to make a change may it be in their school, in their community or in the world. Honoring them for their hard work hopefully help them continue to grow and make others aware of the great things they do.

Each in his or her own way, they have left an indelible mark on the community.
The celebration headed by Windy City Times newspaper will be co-hosted with AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Lesbian Community Cancer Project and Chicago House. The event is from 6 – 8 pm at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Ave. This is a free event however RSVPs are being requested due to limited seating. RSVP to 773-871-7610.
