Nominations for the 2023 class of VISTA Millennial Superstars have been filtering in for more than a month.
With the Feb. 3 deadline on the horizon, now is the time to submit nominations.
We’ve had individuals nominated from a wide range of industries, and their achievements are a confirmation that Chester County’s future is in great hands.
In 2019, VISTA Today launched VISTA Millennial Superstars to identify and honor Chester County’s most dynamic business and professional leaders, under the age of 40, who are shaping the county.
After three highly successful installments of VISTA Millennial Superstars, we are currently searching, with the help of Penn State Great Valley and the Chester County Economic Development Council, for our fourth class of honorees.
The annual Awards Reception & Celebration, which has become the premier networking event in Chester County, will be held on Thursday, May 18 at the Penn State Great Valley Conference Center.
What is a VISTA Millennial Superstar?
It’s a young professional (under the age of 40) who is breaking down walls, shattering expectations, and doing remarkable work in his or her profession or community. VISTA Millennial Superstars are blazing trails of success throughout Chester County, making it a better place to live.
How does the process work? Nominate an employee, colleague, client, friend, or yourself to join the 2023 class of VISTA Millennial Superstars.
A committee will then evaluate and select 40 honorees from the hundreds of expected submissions. Honorees must:
- live or work in Chester County or be enrolled in a Chester County-based university
- be 39 years old or younger as of April 30, 2023
- have achieved notable success in their chosen profession or trade
- be actively engaged in efforts to improve Chester County’s quality of place
- be an awesome person
The winners will be announced the week of Feb. 27, and their profiles will be featured on VISTA Today beginning March 20.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the HC Opportunity Center, the Thorndale-based nonprofit formerly known as Handi-Crafters that has a well-established history of service to the community, providing people with employment barriers training and a job opportunity in their journey to reach their full potential.
