There are just a few days remaining to nominate candidates for the Macoupin Made Young Leader of the Year. The new award was created by the Macoupin Economic Development Partnership, which is looking to honor 25 young leaders, under the age of 45. One of the 25 will be bestowed the honor at the organization's annual dinner on June 14.

The Partnership's Courtney Wood says nominees are those working to make Macoupin County an attractive place in which young leaders establish their careers and take ownership of its economic future by engaging in the community professionally, personally and philanthropically.

Wood comments

Nominees must live and/or work in Macoupin County. They must also be at least 21 and no older than 45 before May 11. Nominees and their nominators do not have to be members of MEDP to participate, and you may nominate more than one person. For more information, log onto
