The YP Awards

Attendees will enjoy dinner, live music and a celebration of up-and-coming young professionals in our community.
The Community Service Award will be given to any young professional currently living or working in Greater Hattiesburg who has made significant contributions to the community through civic engagement, board or committee work, and/or involvement with charitable organizations.
The Professional Promise Award will be given to a current member of Pine Belt Young Professionals who demonstrates noteworthy professional achievement, leadership, and a commitment to bettering Greater Hattiesburg.
The Stewardship Award will be given to three individuals who have made a significant contribution to the advancement of one or more young professionals’ careers in Greater Hattiesburg. Recipients of this award inspire and encourage young professionals through their mentorship and leadership.
