Annual Mentor Awards Luncheon
In 1990, TEMPO established the Mentor Awards event to recognize individuals and organizations in the community dedicated to the mentoring of others. Mentor Award recipients are nominated by individuals within the Milwaukee community. Nominations are then judged on three criteria: mentoring of others, business leadership and community leadership. Click here for a listing of past winners.

Mentor Award winners are recognized at the annual event, typically held each February. Winners receive a financial contribution in their honor which is designated in his/her name and awarded to a woman at a four-year educational institution in the state of Wisconsin. Scholarships are provided by the TEMPO Foundation, through the generous support of corporate sponsors and individual donors. TEMPO has awarded more than $240,000 in scholarships to more than 75 Wisconsin women since the inception of the event.
