Nominations sought for Southern Vermont Emerging Leaders awards

The communities of Windham and Bennington counties are full of extraordinary individuals who are working to make a difference. The public is invited to help honor and celebrate the next generation of leaders (ages 21 to 40) by submitting a nomination for this year's Southern Vermont Emerging Leaders awards.

Nominations are due Friday, March 15, and can be submitted using a brief online form at

Each year since 2018, the Southern Vermont Young Professionals (a program of Brattleboro Development Credit Corporation) and the Shires Young Professionals have sought to highlight and honor young adults in their roles as leaders and change-makers in the southern Vermont economy and community through the Emerging Leaders awards.

More than 100 local leaders have been given an Emerging Leaders award since the beginning of the program, and 35 of those have subsequently been recognized statewide through (1)Vermont Business Magazine's Rising Stars awards as well.
