Actress Brittany Snow, perhaps best known as mean girl Amber Von Tussle in the 2007 musical film Hairspray, will be honored with the inaugural Point Horizon Award. The Point Foundation is the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for LGBT students of merit. The Point Horizon Award recognizes a young person who has taken a leadership role as an advocate for LGBT people.

"We're honored to recognize Brittany for her vocal support of the LGBT community and Point Foundation. It isn't easy for someone so young and visible to take a strong stand on the importance of equality, and yet time and again she has been outspoken in her unwavering support of a more fair and equal environment for all individuals," Point's executive director and CEO, Jorge Valencia, says in a statement. "Envisioning a future where all individuals are seen as equals makes Brittany most deserving to be the first recipient of this award."

The award will be presented at Point's fourth annual Los Angeles benefit, Point Honors, to be held September 25 at Raleigh Studios.
