The Lexington Young Professionals Association is seeking nominations for the annual Rising Stars Awards. Rising Stars Awards recognize young professionals – aged 40 and under – in the Fayette County area and surrounding communities.
According to LYPA, nominees should demonstrate a strong commitment to impacting the community in a positive manner through professional and non-professional service and achievement. Nominees must live or work in Bourbon, Clark, Fayette, Franklin, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Scott or Woodford counties. In addition, individuals who are currently serving on the LYPA Steering Council or previous Rising Stars recipients are not eligible. However, past nominees who were not selected for the award are strongly encouraged to resubmit an application.
Since its founding in July 2000, LYPA has grown into an organization of hundreds of young professionals in Lexington and the surrounding area. Its mission is to create an organization that emphasizes personal, civic and professional development for local professionals between the ages of 21 and 40.
To nominate a young professional, visit: http://lexypa.org/annual-lypa-events/rising-stars-awards/ and submit a nomination form by Saturday, Aug. 25. An awards banquet will be held this fall.
