Young Professionals Awards Competition Announced

Business NH Magazine, the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development and the Stay Work, Play initiative are launching four new Young Professionals Awards competitions.

In order to remain competitive, NH needs to attract and retain younger talent. There have been several initiatives launched focused on that, from the formation of young professionals groups throughout the state to the University System of NH’s 55 Percent Initiative, to a governor’s task force on the retention of young people that led to the establishment of the Stay, Work, Play initiative.

young-professionalsTo further spotlight this important issue, Business NH Magazine is working with Stay, Work Play, the state’s Young Professionals organizations and the New Hampshire Division of  Economic Development to launch a new awards program recognizing outstanding young professionals, initiatives to keep them here and the businesses that go the extra mile to recruit and retain them.

There are six Young Professionals Awards. Companies and individuals are invited to apply online, and applying for more than one award is encouraged.

1. The Coolest Companies for Young Professionals will honor one small company, one medium-sized company and one large company, all in NH. 

2. The Young Professional of the Year award honors an outstanding professional 40 years old or younger. 

3. The Young Professionals Network Program of the Year will honor an innovative program developed by a young professional group.

4. The Stay, Work, Play Leadership Award will be given to an individual, organization, initiative or program in NH that supports young professionals in NH.

To apply, visit the “Competitions” link at www.millyardcommunications.com. Applications are due by Thursday, August 12. Winners will be featured in the Young Professionals Guide in the November issue of Business NH Magazine and feted at an awards ceremony in November.
