To nominate a young professional, visit: and submit a nomination form by Saturday, August 25th, 2018.

Individuals will be selected by an outside selection committee, composed of leaders in the Lexington –Fayette County community. Details on the awards banquet will be available soon.

To honor the nominees and the 2015 Rising Stars, please consider purchasing a corporate table at the Rising Stars awards ceremony and advertising space in the program to congratulate the nominees on their noteworthy accomplishments. Contact Aaron Rothke at for more information on sponsorship opportunities.
