Rising Stars Awards’ Raffle

THE MISSION

RisingStarsDark_Logos_Rounded

The Rising Stars Awards celebrate New Hampshire’s remarkable young professionals and the companies that support them. In order to remain competitive, NH needs to retain and attract young rising talent and these awards are a prime way to recognize NH’s students, young people, and the companies that are working hard to entice them to stay in the state.

THE EVENT

A collaborative event between Stay Work Play and New Hampshire Public Radio, we will celebrate the winners of the seven award categories on Thursday, October 11, 2018. Recognizing the outstanding Young Professional, Coolest Companies for Young Professionals, including the People’s Choice Award, Civic Leader of the Year, Young Entrepreneur of the Year, College Student of the Year, Intern of the Year (new for 2018!), and the Life in the 603 Video of the Year.

The exclusive event will host hundreds of young professionals from throughout the Granite State; guests include college students, young business professionals, and business and community leaders. This year, attendees will be able to purchase a puck to be used for our raffle fundraiser using a Plinko board game. Each participant is guaranteed to win an item from a NH business or organization (i.e. gift certificates, products, experiences, etc.). This will allow the winners to experience a variety of great places that make up the Granite State. The opportunity to explore the businesses and activities around the state also brings the donating organizations new visitors to their place of business.
