2022 Class of Rising Stars Submission Form

  • The Independent invites you to nominate an individual making a difference in Kansas City for our 2022 Class of Rising Stars.

  • Deadline to submit nomination packets: December 17, 2021. Nominations will not be accepted after this date.

    No age restriction.

    While we applaud the great work of non-profit employees, please do not nominate someone based on his/her work as an employee. To nominate an employee of a non-profit organization, the nomination must be based on other volunteer work in the community, not on the person's role as an employee. Please do not include a nomination letter from anyone at the same organization that is submitting this nomination packet.
