Pulse Young Professionals & The Post-Crescent
5th Annual Fox Cities Future 15 Young Professionals Awards
(The nomination deadline was Sunday, November 16th)
Pulse Young Professionals, a program of the Fox Cities Chamber of Commerce and the Fox Cities Regional Partnership, in collaboration with Post-Crescent Media; will honor the top 15 Young Professionals on Thursday, February 26th, 2015 at The Outer Edge Stage in downtown Appleton.
The Fox Cities has thousands of young professionals who excel not only within their respective places of employment but also give back to our community in innumerable ways. These professionals shine new light on their diverse fields and positively influence our quality of life in the Fox Cities, an influence that plays an integral role in attracting and retaining talent in the area. Future 15 recipients will be chosen based on their professional dedication, strong sense of vision for the future of the Fox Cities and personal commitment to philanthropy in the community they call home and beyond.
Nominations for the Future 15 Young Professional Awards will open up on Tuesday, October 28th, 2014. Those nominated will have the option to submit an application; those who complete the application will advance on for Future 15 consideration. A subcommittee of judges will narrow down all applications to the top 25 candidates, using a set judging criteria. Next a panel of judges consisting of area business leaders will review the top 25 applications and score them. These scores will account for 90% of their overall score. The remaining 10% will be made up of the online voting component, which will allow the public to cast their vote. Only the top 25 candidates will be a part of the online vote. Online voting will take place for one week on postcrescent.com.
The Future 15 will be recognized at an event on Thursday, February 26th, 2015 at the Outer Edge Stage in downtown Appleton WI and will be featured inside The Post-Crescent.
