ENR MidAtlantic is excited to announce its Top Young Professionals for 2017. Formerly known as Top 20 Under 40, the awards program honors individuals who have built extraordinary industry portfolios in just a few short years. In addition, many donate significant amounts of time and expertise to serve their communities.

Each recipient will be profiled in more detail in the February issue of ENR MidAtlantic.

ENR MidAtlantic received 40 entries for this year's competition, so it was a challenge for the judges to narrow the entries to 22. We strongly encourage anyone who submitted but did not win to resubmit next year if the candidate is still eligible – just be sure to save a copy of your entry and add in all the accomplishments to come in 2017!

You can read more about the program and each winner in the print edition. Thanks again to everyone who participated this year.
