#YoungPhillyLeads Awards: The Next Level of #whyilovephilly: Tell us WHO you love, Philly.


Calling all community builders, instigators, activists, connectors, leaders, rabble-rousers: we want to share your best ideas with the world in October.

In partnership with Forbes and the Under 30 Summit, Young Involved Philadelphia (YIP) will be highlighting the people, projects, and organizations whose ideas and work are remaking Philadelphia. On October 5th, the #YoungPhillyLeads event we will be recognizing the young Philadelphians that have taken their #whyilovephilly game to the next level. Those people will have the opportunity to share how they are shaping, creating, and supporting their communities.

This is YIP’s official call to nominate the people behind those efforts! We are seeking nominations from the following communities; Education; Government; Startups; Not-for-Profits; Civic; and Media. At the event on October 5th, nominees will have the opportunity to share their work. The audience, through live polling, will then decide who takes home a #YoungPhillyLeads award.

So, take a deep breath and help us identify which of Philly’s individuals and organizations are taking the kind of action that moves their community (and Philadelphia) forward.
