The award is presented to a young man and a young woman each year for their achievements in leadership and service to the community. Only men and women 40 years of age or younger that have lived in Hall County during 2012 are eligible.

Many of have continued to make a difference in the community and held such positions as a federal judge, U.S. Congressmen, Governor, bank president and generous philanthropist.
