MVB's 40 Under 40 nominations being accepted

Magazine's awards recognize people making outstanding contributions to business, wider community

The Eagle-Tribune

---- — MVB, the region’s business magazine, once again is in search of outstanding young people in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire to recognize through this high-profile awards presentation.

Each year, MVB — a sister publication to The Eagle-Tribune, honors 40 people under 40 years of age for their outstanding contributions to the business and broader community. Last year’s winners were chosen from hundreds of nominees, and even more entries are expected this year.

“We are happy to recognize these young movers and shakers who are making a difference in our communities,” said Karen Andreas, regional publisher of North of Boston Media Group. “We’re expecting many nominations, and I’m certain it will be difficult to narrow the field.”

Nominees for the third annual 40 Under 40 Awards now are being accepted. Winners will be recognized in our October edition of MVB, as well as at a luncheon at Northern Essex Community College in Haverhill, to which the public is invited to celebrate with the winners and their families, friends and colleagues.

“I never fail to be awed by the hundreds of nominations we receive spotlighting young people who are making a huge impact on the Valley,” said Tracey Rauh, the magazine’s editor. “These people provide massive support to the community, not only through their professional work, but also by volunteering, fundraising and participating in other charitable endeavors — and many of them while starting families and parenting small children.”

If you know someone who is under 40 years of age and making the community a better place through business, volunteer and other efforts, please let us know by entering a ballot. Nominations are accepted via U.S. mail, email and online at www.eagletribune.com. Entry forms are available in the newspaper and on the website.
