Penn State Lehigh Valley to 'Light It Up Blue' for autism awareness
For the fourth year, Penn State Lehigh Valley will join with thousands of people, businesses and organizations across the country and the world to help shine a light on autism through the Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue campaign. From April 1-4, in commemoration of the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, the Nittany Lion Shrine at the north entrance of the campus will be illuminated in a special blue light.
In past years, some buildings and sculptures that have participated in this lighting include the Empire State Building; Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and the Opera House in Sydney, Australia. Many smaller communities, businesses, and organizations also participate across the globe.
