ENR California and Hawaii is pleased to announce the region’s Top Young Professionals for 2018. This annual program honors individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary expertise, leadership and community service in their careers. 

Each recipient will be profiled in more detail in the February issue of ENR California. Also recently, ENR’s Oct. 30, 2017 Top 20 Under 40 cover story and accompanying series of videos recognized the magazine’s first national class of honorees arising from the regional competition.

ENR California and Hawaii received nearly 70 entries for this year's competition, so it was especially challenging to narrow the outstanding entries to just 20. Thanks again to everyone who participated this year. Congratulations to each member of this region's Top Young Professionals class!
