Junior Achievement is accepting nominations for its 11th Annual Indy’s Best and Brightest event, and one of the categories is technology. Indy’s Best and Brightest honors 100 of Central Indiana’s outstanding young professionals, age 40 and under, who are making their mark in and around Indianapolis. This event was created by Junior Achievement to recognize the up and coming talent and the next generation of leaders in our community.

We love to “stack the deck with tech” and make sure the best and brightest from the tech sector are aware of technology awards programs such as these, especially when they are recognizing young people. TechPoint has our own Rising Star category at the annual Mira Awards, so we know just how much amazing young tech talent there is in Indianapolis!

The deadline is this Friday, Aug. 22.

They are currently accepting nominations for the 100 finalists. Ten Finalists will be honored in each of the following categories:

  • Accounting
  • Banking & Financial Services
  • Education & Nonprofit
  • Government
  • Health & Life Sciences
  • Law
  • Manufacturing, Retail & Services
  • Media, Entertainment & Sports
  • Real Estate Development & Construction
  • Technology
