The Young Professionals of Knoxville are getting ready for the Fourth Annual YPK Impact Awards, and they are requesting help in recognizing those making an impact. For the past three years, YPK has honored local companies and individuals who are making an impact on young professionals at work, as clients, customers, or in the community.

YPK’s mission is to inspire Knoxville’s young professionals to connect, develop, and serve to build leaders and improve their community, making Knoxville the most desirable city for young professionals to live, work and play. The Impact Awards serve as appreciation and recognition to those companies and individuals that advance the mission of YPK.

At this time, YPK is inviting community members to nominate those businesses and individuals who are deserving of recognition. YPK Impact Award categories

include: Mentor of the Year, Outstanding Young Professional, Most Impactful Small Business, Most Impactful Large Business and Most Impactful Nonprofit Organization.

Award nominations are due by Friday, September 9. Selections will be made by a panel of judges who award points based on universal criteria and award winners will be announced at the YPK Impact Awards on November 18.
