Young Professional of the Year

We are looking for an outstanding young professional working and living in NH, between the ages of 18 and 40 who is a rising star in their industry and giving back to their community. Self-nominations are discouraged.

A panel of judges representing Stay Work Play and business and community leaders from across the state will select the award recipient.

The Young Professional of the Year award 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 Young Professional of the Year, the intention is that the $500 be used for membership in a professional organization, leadership program, attendance at a conference, or something specifically professional-development-related.
