Rising Star Nominations

We need your help in identifying the 2011 Rising Stars — those under 35 adults that are truly making a difference in the community and who you believe are destined to build a better Pensacola.


1. Must be younger than 35 years old as of Dec. 31, 2010.

2. Must work, live or go to school in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

3. 2008, 2009 and 2010 IN Rising Stars are not eligible. Sorry, need to spread the joy.

How to nominate: Send nominee’s name, address, phone numbers and email address and a brief 50–word statement as to why you believe that person is a “Rising Star” to rick@inweekly.net. Please put “Rising Star” in the subject line.

All nominations must be received by Dec. 31, 2010. Nominees will be contacted for more detailed information which will be reviewed by a panel of community leaders. The “Rising Star” finalists will be published in our Jan. 20, 2011 issue.
