Junior Achievement of Central Indiana is searching for its next group of Indy’s Best and Brightest. The nonprofit says nominations are now being accepted for the annual event, which honors 100 young professionals age 40 and under “for their professional success and philanthropic impact” on the community.
Nominations are open through November 4. Of the 100 finalists, 10 will be chosen as the overall winners within each industry category. Finalists and overall winners will be announced at the event in March.
The categories include accounting; banking and financial services; education and nonprofit; government, tourism, and arts; health and life sciences; law; manufacturing, retail and services; media, entertainment, and sports; real estate, development and construction; and technology.
The event was created by JA to recognize up-and-coming talent and future leaders. The nonprofit says finalists in each category are judged based on professional accomplishments, civic contributions, character, and leadership qualities.
