Recognized as a Leader in Education, Art, & Culture Category

NEWTOWN, Conn. - Hartok -- Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement announced today that Scarlett Lewis has been named a Silver Anthem Awards Winner in Education, Art, & Culture. Lewis was selected from nearly 2,500 entries from 36 countries worldwide.

Lewis founded the nonprofit Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement in honor of her son, Jesse, who was murdered during the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in December, 2012. Shortly after his death, Lewis decided to be part of the solution to the issues that we're seeing in our society — that also caused the tragedy — and turned it into an opportunity to build a culture of love, resilience, forgiveness, and connection in our communities at a time when it is needed the most.

Choose Love programs offer free Character Social Emotional Development programming for children and adults reaching over 3 million children in all 50 states and 120 countries.

Anthem Winners are selected by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences. Members include Daniel Dae Kim (actor, producer, and activist);  Ashley Judd (Author, Actor, and Social Justice Humanitarian); Mitchell Baker (CEO and chairwoman, Mozilla); Lisa Sherman (president and CEO, Ad Council), Sarah Kate Ellis (president and CEO, GLAAD); Renata Erlikhman (chief investment officer, OW Management); Shayla Tait (director of philanthropy, The Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation); Russlynn Ali (CEO and co-founder, XQ Institute); Marc Ecko (chief commercial officer and board member, XQ Institute); Heidi Arthur (chief campaign development officer, Ad Council); and Alexis M. Herman (chair and chief executive officer, New Ventures, and former U.S. secretary of labor).

"I am so grateful to be honored. By Choosing Love, we are creating a ripple effect that is making a difference in our own lives and the lives of others," said Lewis.

The Anthem Awards was launched in response to the prevalence social good has taken within the national conversation and cultural zeitgeist in recent years. By amplifying the voices that spark global change, the Anthem Awards are defining a new benchmark for impactful work that inspires others to take action in their communities. A portion of program revenue will fund a new grant program supporting emerging individuals and organizations working to advance the causes recognized in the inaugural Anthem Awards.
