We are looking for an outstanding college student going to school in NH, between the ages of 18 and 24, who is an academic rising star and giving back to their community.
A panel of judges representing Stay Work Play and higher education institutions across the state will select the finalists and award recipient.
The College Student of the Year winner will receive a $500 stipend. We want to honor the work that these young people have done in and for NH and give them something they can use to continue their hard work and efforts. With the College Student of the Year, the intention is that the $500 be used for tuition, books, loan payments, or something specifically education-related.
