GREAT FALLS — Nominations are due by midnight on Friday, February 12, 2021, for the eighth year of our "Five Under 35" program.
KRTV’s Shannon Newth created the Five Under 35 initiative as a way to recognize young adults in Great Falls whose attitudes and actions are making our community an even better place to live. Shannon hopes the initiative will boost morale and encourage others to take an active role in the community. Five Under 35 was born with the intention of recognizing those who are already in the community, not only doing amazing things, but who also have an attitude that combats the negativity that is often more contagious. It’s more than a good deeds award. It’s about addressing community concerns through positivity and passion.
Here are last year's Five Under 35:
- Five Under 35: Luc Swensson
- Five Under 35: Jami Wald
- Five Under 35: Joshua Diegel
- Five Under 35: Matthew Hunter
- Five Under 35: Rachel Arthur
Here’s how the initiative works. Anyone is welcome to fill out a nomination form (below). Those who are nominated must be age 35 or younger, and live or work in Great Falls. Once the final five are selected, Shannon will meet with each winner. The stories not only showcase who each winner is, but also features each person's thoughts on what Great Falls has going for it and how it can be improved, specifically with the young adult population in mind.
