Connor Franta Gets the #Gamechanger Award Honor
Connor attended the show at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. He looked sharp in a suit (and bowtie) and walked down the red carpet. He even found some time to pose with the adorable Target dog.
Some other honorees included actress Kate Hudson and Target. Here he is posing with the National Student Council.
Connor even got to make a speech to the crowd of luminaries.
His friend Tyler Oakley also congratulated Connor on his achievement
“I’m so proud of Connor Franta,” he said. “It makes him a hero. A worthy recipient.”
