Forum 35's Baton Rouge Original Award 

 2018 Nominations are Open

Each year, Forum 35 recognizes an individual dedicated to improving the Baton Rouge community through exemplary leadership, visionary thinking, and extraordinary volunteerism. We believe these individuals are representative of a characteristic everyone in our community should strive for: selflessness. The example set by these individuals serves our community as a beacon, showing us how we can make a difference in our community.


Forum 35 will also present the BR Original Young Professional Award. BR Original Young Professional Award will recognize and pay tribute to those who are doing extraordinary things in our community. This award is presented to a young professional who has emerged as a business leader, demonstrated excellence, creativity and initiative in their career and has made a positive impact in the community. The award will be open to Young Professionals's from 21-39 who live and work in the Baton Rouge area, they will not need to be a Forum 35 member to be recognized. 


As community awards, Forum 35 seeks nominations annually from inside and outside our organization to assist our Board of Directors in choosing appropriate winners. The nomination deadline is Tuesday, October 10th, 2017.


The Baton Rouge Original  and BR Original Young Professional Awards will be presented at Forum 35's Community Impact Breakfast in October.
