Current Young Professionals

Future 15 & Young Professional Awards

Current Young Professionals (CYP) created the young professional awards in 2007 as a way to honor those who advance its mission by profiling best practices that could be adopted by other local individuals and organizations. Additionally, CYP sought to recognize local young professionals in Greater Green Bay who are achieving noteworthy accomplishments and contributing to the overall quality of life.

Future 15 annually profiles 15 young professionals and awards a Young Professional of the Year, Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and Next Generation Best Place to Work. These honorees are currently influencing the growth, prosperity, and quality of life in Greater Green Bay and demonstrate the ability to positively impact the area in the future through professional accomplishments and community involvement.

Nominate a deserving young professional, young entrepreneur, or business for the 2024 Future 15 & Young Professional Awards!


Included with the Future 15, you can also nominate for the Young Professional Awards, with the exception of the Young Professional of the Year which is selected from the pool of Future 15 recipients.

Nominations close October 16, 2023.
