Her Campus Media Announces Call for 2015 ‘22 Under 22’ Most Inspiring College Women Nominations

BOSTON, MA - Her Campus Media has launched a search for its first-annual 22 Under 22 Most Inspiring College Women list to recognize and highlight ambitious, talented, and big-thinking undergraduate college women. As the #1 global community for college women with chapters at 250+ colleges and universities worldwide, Her Campus is thrilled to now leverage its deep connections in the college sphere to highlight the achievements of those collegiettes who are already accomplishing major feats before they even leave campus, whether it be through nonprofit work, start-up success, athletics, high-impact research, or in any other area.

The 22 Under 22 honorees will be influencers on their campus (and beyond) who demonstrate leadership, excel academically, are doing big things in an area that’s important to them, and who have ambitious goals for their future.

“Over the past five years working with thousands of college women, I have been floored by the remarkable things these women are accomplishing before they even have a diploma in hand. I am proud to further our mission of serving as a champion for college women through our inaugural 22 Under 22 competition to recognize the amazing contributions these women are making on their campuses and to society at large,” said Stephanie Kaplan Lewis, Co-founder, CEO & editor-in-Chief of Her Campus Media.


The nomination and entry period for 22 Under 22 will run through May 31, 2015. Eligible students may be nominated by someone else or enter themselves athercampus.com/22under22. A panel of judges will review finalists during Summer 2015 and the final 22 Under 22 list will be announced in September 2015. Winners will be recognized with prominent profiles on HerCampus.com and featured on our annual 22 Under 22 Most Inspiring College Women list, with additional prizing from Her Campus’s partners.

Eligibility: Self-identifying female students age 22 or younger as of September 30, 2015 who will be enrolled full-time at an undergraduate institution in fall 2015 and who will graduate from college no sooner than December 2015.
