Facebook Live served as the virtual celebratory means by which the NKYP presented the 2020 NGLA Awards, which took place Thursday, July 16, 2020. Designed to salute and applaud young professionals under 40 for significant professional achievements, demonstrated leadership and community impact, the awards recognize talented young leaders and their contributions to the region.
Each of this year’s winners were chosen from a group of nearly 70 applications from across the region. The applications were then reviewed and narrowed down to a group of finalists in six categories based on primary job responsibilities across several industries.
The 2020 winners in each category are:
