Nominations received will be narrowed down to the top 10 by a panel of independent judges composed of local community and business leaders. The top 10 will be announced and honored at a luncheon Aug. 29 at Convention Hall.



“We had such a great response last year to the awards and luncheon,” said EYP Vice President Rynn Day. “We are excited to be planning for an even bigger turn-out this year.”



The luncheon will include Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb as guest speaker.



“Our goal is to help spotlight the talented up-and-coming young professionals in our area that are making a difference in the community every day,” said Tim Campbell, EYP 10 Under 40 chair.
