    NOMINATION FORM

TAPPI Young Professionals of the Year Award


Originally named “TAPPI’s Top 20 Under 30” award, this award was initiated in 2015 to recognize 20 aspiring, young leaders in the paper, packaging, tissue and related industries. The award was amended by the Young Professionals Division in 2017 to recognize a smaller group of young professionals, in an effort to raise the level of prestige of the award, expand the demographics of winners to be more inclusive of all younger professionals, and provide more exposure for each awardee. The award was elevated to Association level status starting with the 2018 class. Eligible nominees can be up to age 35, and must have no more than 10 years of industry experience. The awards are given annually and presented at the PaperCon Conference.

Nominations are due by August 1 of each year for the award to be presented the following calendar year.
