Generation NOW Awards

(FORMERLY TOP 10 LIST)

            In Cincinnati, many young professionals believe they are not receiving the recognition they need and find it difficult to further develop their personal and professional brands. This has led to a growing epidemic of people moving to other cities to pursue their careers and seek acknowledgement elsewhere. We believe we can show young professionals that they can in fact make a name for themselves here at Generation NOW by providing a platform to honor their achievements, celebrate their success, and further their growth. Nominations for our lists are made by leaders from various Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations.

Special thanks to our past “Top 10 List” sponsors P&G, First Financial Bank, and RDI
