Much-Deserved Recognition

Nominations Open for YP of the Year

Do you know a young professional who volunteers for a nonprofit? Or maybe someone who serves on a board of directors for a local organization? Or perhaps a young professional who recently opened a business in our area?

We are constantly amazed by those “under 40” who are making a difference in our community. There are so many young professionals who deserve recognition, and this is why we hold FLEX Presents each year.

At this annual event, we celebrate nominees (and all young professionals) and name the Young Professional of the Year. Nominees must give back to our community and show qualities of a leader (see criteria below).

Event details are still being discussed, but we plan to have limited in-person attendance, then live stream it online. We hope you’ll consider nominating a young professional you see going above and beyond in our community, and help us give them much-deserved recognition.


Nominees must:
• Live or work in Venango County and be 18-39 years of age.
• Participate in activities outside of work that make a difference in the well-being of others.
• Have exceptional ethical qualities and strive to improve and preserve the community.

The nomination process includes a form, as well as a letter stating the candidate’s qualities for the award, written by the nominator.

Find a nomination form at Forms are due by March 19.
