About the Award

The Cleveland Professional 20/30 Club will present it's 11th annual Movers & Shakers Awards in 2017.  The award celebrates 25 individuals under the age of 35 for excellence in their work, civic engagement, academia, and/or philanthropic efforts.  Each year it is extremely difficult to determine Northeast Ohio's 'Movers & Shakers' due to the outstanding nominations and applications received.  The application process typically begins in early January and concludes early February, with an awards ceremony held each March to honor the 25 individuals selected.  We look forward to welcoming the next group of young professionals into our Movers & Shakers family and supporting them in all of their endeavors to help Cleveland thrive.
