ORA Sponsoring Hospitality Category in 2018 NextGen Under 30 Awards

ORA Sponsoring Hospitality Category in 2018 NextGen Under 30 Awards

Do you know anyone (maybe yourself!) who is under 30 years of age and demonstrates talent, drive and service to their communities? 

The Oklahoma Restaurant Association, along with the Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, is excited to again sponsor one of fifteen categories in the 2018 NextGen Under 30 Oklahoma Awards, a statewide program honoring talented, high-achieving Millennial leaders. ORA and OH&LA will co-sponsor the Hospitality Category, which includes restaurants/foodservice, bars, and hotels. 

The awards program is now accepting nominations for its 2018 class, and we encourage ORA members to nominate individuals in the Hospitality category. The person must be 30 or younger in 2018. Your nomination is anonymous, unless you personally share the activity with him or her, and you may nominate more than one candidate. 

NextGen Under 30 Oklahoma aims to support retention of Millennial professionals in Oklahoma by recognizing outstanding achievements among the state’s best and brightest. 

A panel of business and civic leaders will serve as judges to select 15 winners in each of the 15 categories with one gold, one silver and 13 bronze winners. Winners are chosen based upon their participation in and contribution to their communities, while pushing the boundaries in innovation, creativity, and inspiration. 

NextGen Under 30 Oklahoma will honor the award winners with a banquet for winners and their families and friends on November 2, 2018. 

The deadline to nominate someone for the 2018 NextGen Under 30 Oklahoma Awards is August 24, 2018. For more information about the Next Gen Under 30 event, visit http://nextgenunder30.com/
