What About BOB? We Took Home 2 BOB Awards!

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

Carol Miller, Phil Przybyszewski, Jeffrey Rose, Michael Power accepting two BOB awards this week.

The BOB Awards, handed out every year by our friends at New Hampshire Business Review, recognize scores of businesses from around the state for how they conduct their business; it’s a measure of the best of the best.

So we are pleased to receive two awards this year for our efforts with the Sector Partnership Initiative and Expanding Global Trade.

“With 3,500 ballots cast for 2017 awards, the BOBs continue to be considered a standard of excellence in the New Hampshire business community,” said NHBR Editor Jeff Feingold.

On hand to accept the awards were Commissioner Rose; Carol Miller, our broadband technology director; and Michael Power, Office of Workforce Opportunity and Phil Przybyszewski, who coordinate the Sector Partnership Initiative.

Thank you for the honor!


Here’s to Our What’s So Cool About Manufacturing? Video Contest Winners

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016



The students from Northampton School, who won the 2016 What’s So Cool About Manufacturing? video contest were feted by Commissioner Rose, Gov. Hassan and the Executive Council last week (watch here). What an enthusiastic group!

We had great participation this year; in all, 10 schools submitted 11 videos, which you can watch on the NHEconomy.com YouTube channel. Thanks to generous sponsorship from Hypertherm, BAE Systems and Velcro USA, we handed out $1,750 to the top three entries.

We are already planning the 2017 contest, so we’re putting out the word to parents, principals, teachers and manufacturers to become involved next year. It’s open to middle school students in New Hampshire.

If you’re interested, head over to our video contest page (we’re updating it, but the information is the same!) and use the handy-dandy form to let us know. We’ll work with teachers to partner with a local manufacturer and we’ll work with manufacturers to pair them with a team.

Teams can get started once the new school year begins in September; the deadline is Feb. 10. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
