Manchester, NH – The Leadership Mount Washington Valley is a finalist for a Rising Star Award. The Rising Stars Awards are an initiative of Stay Work Play to celebrate and recognize New Hampshire’s remarkable young workers, entrepreneurs, and college students, initiatives to keep them here, and the businesses and programs that go the extra mile to recruit and retain them.

Leadership Mount Washington Valley is among three nominated for the Leadership Development Program of the Year.

Jessie Wright from MWV Leadership said “I think the thing that attracted someone to nominate us for the award was probably how our student debt relief program tries to help encourage people to stay in the Valley, even though wages might not be as high as somewhere else.”

The Leadership Development Program of the Year award honors an innovative program initiated and conducted by a NH organization aimed at a young audience to propel their personal and professional growth. The other nominees are Leadership After City Year (LACY), an initiative of City Year NH and New Teachers Retreat.

The finalists, selected by 35 judges (on individual award-specific panels from throughout the state), represent individuals, businesses and programs making a contribution to their industry and the Granite State for seven award categories: ‘Shire Story Video of the Year, Civic Leader of the Year, College Student of the Year, Coolest Companies for Young Professionals, Leadership Development Program of the Year, Young Entrepreneur of the Year and Young Professional of the Year.

The winners will be presented at the 2017 celebratory event on Monday, October 2 from 5:30 to 7:30pm at Fieldhouse Sports, 12 Tallwood Drive, in Bow.
