As many as ten employees of locally-owned companies who are business clients of 1st Source Bank will be selected by a blue ribbon panel of community leaders from the 1st Source market area.
Award recipients will be presented a globe of leadership, a $1,000 personal cash award and a $1,000 award donated to the local charity of their choice. The awards will be presented at a luncheon hosted by 1st Source Bank.
