INDY Week honors a Triangle resident 35 and under who does fabulous work for local nonprofits by awarding them this prize. Winners must work for a local nonprofit, be 35 and under, and make $35,000 a year or less. This year's winner will receive their award, which includes $500, at a kick-off Give!Guide party on November 9 at Person Street Bar in Raleigh.

Steve Schewel/Sanford School Award winners are chosen from a pool of nominees nominated by their peers and coworkers. The nomination process takes place late August - mid-September. A committee of INDY Week employees, former Award winners, and Duke Sanford School students select finalists to interview. One finalist is then chosen as the winner.
