The Global Impression Award will honor up-and-coming leaders throughout the Hoosier state whose work is directly impacting the globalization of Indiana. We want to recognize and celebrate the young leaders whose work complements and enhances that of The Center: Expanding Indiana’s global interest through a variety of programs and services and through convening diverse interests that share common international goals. 

The Center will recognize the top three nominees at the International Citizen of the Year Dinner and Program, The Center’s premier annual stakeholder event.  This year, we will honor Indiana’s Governor, The Honorable Eric J. Holcomb, on August 23, 2018 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in downtown Indianapolis.

The 2018 Global Impression Award winner, selected from among three finalists, will be announced during the event as an important new highlight to the evening’s program!

Award Committee

The International Center has assembled a five-person award committee responsible for selecting the top Global Impression Award nominees. No committee member is an International Center employee. A short list of potential winners will be provided to The International Center’s Board of Directors for final consideration. The vote will be blind, as nominees’ names will not be disclosed.
