About the Awards

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

CYP is a program of the Greater Green Bay Chamber that works to attract, engage, develop and retain young talent in Greater Green Bay. CYP provides an opportunity for individuals to participate in professional development, social networking and community engagement opportunities within the community.
