An organization that works to retain New Hampshire’s young workforce is accepting nominations for its 10th round of annual awards.
The Rising Star Awards given by the nonprofit Stay Work Play NH recognize young people and businesses that succeed in recruiting and retaining them. There are seven categories for awards, including a new addition this year: high school student of the year. Other awards recognize civic leaders, college students, entrepreneurs and “Coolest Company for Young Professionals.”
Nominations will be accepted until July 19. Finalists will be announced in August, and winners will be celebrated in October.
