Mark Stone, Fifth District Supervisor
Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors
"As a father of two Scotts Valley High students and the Supervisor for the District, I want to welcome the Queer Youth Leadership Awards to the Fifth District.
Please join Supervisor Mark Stone and the community in celebrating this year's nominees and awardees. The Queer Youth Leadership Awards is an inspirational and emotional event that honors the tenacity of queer youth by bringing families, schools, politicians, community members and religious groups. We recognize LGBTIQ leaders in all aspects of life, from athletics to acadacemics, the arts, activism, theatre and the sciences. We believe that by showing the diversity and success of the LGBTIQ youth community, we are helping make schools and communities safer for everyone.
The QYLA honors four queer youth with a financial gift and the chance to donate to a queer friendly non-profit of their choosing. We also honor one ally to queer youth and one organizational ally to queer youth.
