Event Description:

Join HYPE at the annual Icons Awards Show as we recognize young professionals for their early career success and companies killing it with YP culture.  This party will bring YPs and executives from all around Richmond together to celebrate the finalists and honor the winners.


This year’s event will feature keynote speaker, artist Noah Scalin and our host and comedian Micah “Bam-Bamm” White.


Micah “Bam-Bamm” White is the Executive Director of The Central Virginia African American Chamber of Commerce. Prior to his appointment, White operated RVA Has Talent, which showcases local aspiring entertainers.


On the side, he has spent over 20 years in the entertainment industry as a stand-up comedian, host, and philanthropist. Through his various efforts, White’s mission is simple: to use comedy and entertainment to find common ground by bridging racial, religious, socioeconomic, and generational gaps.


Noah Scalin is the first artist-in-residence at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business. He is creator of the Webby Award winning project Skull-A-Day and the collaborative science fiction universe & performance art project League of Space Pirates. His fine art has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Mütter Museum and Krause Gallery in NYC. He is the author of six books, including most recently Creative Sprint – which he co-wrote with his sister/business partner Mica Scalin.
