The Evansville Courier & Press is proud to present a myriad of community programs and events that focus on the best in the Tri-State. From the 90 high school students in the annual Star Student program to the twenty impressive young professionals in our yearly Evansville Business Journal (EBJ) 20 Under 40 program, we are privileged to produce and present these unique Tri-State award special programs.  Beyond these programs, the Tri-State is exceptional in the vast network of local businesses and their owners, and the Courier & Press is very proud to share the news and growth of the business professionals who make the community expand and grow each and every year. Our Reader’s Choice program focuses on showcasing the hundreds of businesses who truly make a difference in our community and we love to share their stories and their accomplishments.  Read on for more information on nominating various professionals in these program and also how to participate.
