Banks should make nominations for 2019 NextGen Under 30 program

Have you heard about the NextGen Under 30 program? It is intended to encourage young adult Oklahomans to stay in the state and make it stronger. Since 2011, the NextGen Program has received over 5,500 nominations and selected 900 individual winners.

The NextGen Award Recognition Program honors individuals (30 years old or younger) who have demonstrated certain career leadership qualities and service to their communities. Last year, the program honored 267 young adult Oklahomans, many of whom are going to be future leaders in our state.

The program knows the banking industry has plenty of young up-and-coming individuals and wants to make sure they have a chance to be recognized. To get your bank’s nomination in, visit, select the “nominations” link, enter your own information (you will remain anonymous) and enter the information of someone you know who is worthy of winning the award. Then, click the “submit” button.

That’s it!

The Nominee will receive an email directing him or her to complete the award application by the deadline date of Aug. 18. Applications are judged, and winners are announced on Sept. 6. A “Day at the Capitol” event is scheduled on Sept. 23, where winners meet the governor and lieutenant governor, followed by a networking luncheon. The 2019 Annual NextGen Dinner and Award Ceremony will be held on  Nov. 15 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Norman.
