How can I be considered for an Icon Honors award?

Nominations can be made by anyone, including yourself. An application is automatically emailed to all nominees and must be completed in order to be considered for this award. A letter of recommendation is not required, but is strongly encouraged to assist the judges in making their decision.

To be eligible, applicants must live in or work in either Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, lower Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, upper Bucks, Schuylkill or Warren County.

How often can I be considered? 

You can be nominated, apply and win annually as long as you are updating your application annually and meet the criteria.

 

Who are the judges and what are they looking for when selecting Icon Honors winners?

Winners are selected by an outside panel of judges that includes previous winners. Judges look for Central PA’s business leaders over the age of 60 who have left an indelible mark in their fields, and whose integrity, vision and selfless service have lifted up the Greater Lehigh Valley community. It is helpful to have at least one letter of recommendation from someone that can speak to all three of these achievements.

Where do I have to live to qualify for this award? 

You must live or work in one of the following counties: Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, lower Monroe, Montgomery, Northampton, upper Bucks, Schuylkill or Warren.

Should I have a letter of recommendation sent?

Past judges have told us that the letter(s) of recommendation is helpful particularly when they are not familiar with the candidate. Up to 3 letters of recommendations can be emailed to [email protected]. Please save all letters of recommendation as PDFs labeled with your name (or organization) led by the category or event you are being nominated for. The letter will be paired to your application when it is received.

I’m an Icon Honors award winner, what now? 

Sit tight, a member of our team will contact you soon with any additional details.

Do the winners have to say something?

Winners do not speak live during the event, but will be contacted to be profiled in a multi-media video that will be aired during the event. 

If I’m a winner, do I need to purchase a ticket?

You do not need to purchase a ticket for yourself if you are an honoree. All other attendees must purchase a ticket. Sponsorship packages are available to purchase for those wanting large groups of tickets and additional benefits.

Can I buy an ad in the publication?

The Icon Honor’s program is supported through sponsorships. The ads you see in the magazine are part of the sponsorship packages. Please email [email protected].

I bought a ticket but I don’t see it? 

Tickets will be sent to you and everyone who registers the day before and the day of the event via email. 

Remember, tickets can only be opened on one device, if you open it on your phone but then try to open it on your computer it will not work.

Contact [email protected] if you have any issues.
