The Network: Young Professionals of the Quad Cities is seeking nominations for the YP Community Impact Awards.

Categories are Best Place to Work for YPs and YP Innovation, and Quad Cities Leaders Under 40 Young Professional of the Year award, previously presented by Black Hawk College.

Submissions are due Friday. Forms are available for download at thenetworkqc.com. The winners will be announced at 5:30 p.m. May 2 at the Establishment Theatre, Rock Island.

The Network also will present awards in the categories of vitality, earning, learning, social capital, cost of lifestyle, after hours and around town.

According to research by Next Generation Consulting, these are key indicators that young professionals take into account when deciding where to live and start a career.

The awards will be presented in tandem with The Network's third annual half-day YP Symposium, themed "Ignite Your Leadership Potential." It will be from1 to 5 p.m. May 2 throughout downtown Rock Island, with meetings at Quad City Arts, city hall and the Establishment Theatre.

The symposium will include a roundtable discussion about Quad-Cities branding and Quad-Cities week, a pilot program scheduled for April 29 through May 3.

Keynote speaker Andy Stoll, a social entrepreneur and media producer, will discuss entrepreneurship and making ideas happen in the community. Ginny Wilson-Peters, president of Integrity Integrated, will discuss dealing with change, and Fred Smith, vice president and managing partner of Spirit Partners, will give advice on decision making.

The Network: Young Professionals of the Quad Cities is an initiative of the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.

1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
