ystark! 17th Annual Twenty under 40! Awards

June 25, 2024 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (EDT)



Twenty under 40! awards recognize Stark County’s leaders under 40 who have demonstrated dynamic leadership and social responsibility. These individuals are committed to making a difference in our community and creating a lasting impact. They are the doers, dreamers, and difference-makers. The longevity of the TU40! program, now in its 17th year, is a testament of the passion, strength, and grit of the young professionals who choose to live, work, and stay in as we honor these 20 individuals and celebrate young professionals in our region.

Winners will be celebrated at a star-studded award ceremony on Tuesday June 25 at The Quarry Golf Club. Join us as we honor these 20 individuals and celebrate young professionals in our region.

Help us give the 20 honorees the recognition they deserve! Purchase a Shoutout message in the program to show your support!

Cost: $50

  • (example: “Congratulations on your award! Your hard work has paid off and we're thrilled to see you recognized. We're proud of you and wish you continued success. Love, Mom & Dad.”)
