ENR’s regional Top Young Professionals 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.

The 2023 class of ENR New England’s Top Young Professionals includes design and construction leaders from across the region, which includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.

Each recipient will be profiled in more detail in the March issue of ENR New England.

After 40 entries were received for this year's competition, the judges narrowed the submissions down to 10 winners. 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 applicants most recent accomplishments.

You can read more about each winner in the March print issue of ENR New England.
