EDmarket Seeking New Class of NexGen Rising Stars

On the heels of a successful launch of the NexGen Rising Stars, the Education Market Association (EDmarket) has opened nominations for 2024. EDmarket’s NexGen Rising Stars Awards program recognizes outstanding young professionals 40 and under for the contributions these emerging leaders bring to the education field. The recipients will be chosen based on their exceptional dedication to the industry, innovative thinking, and positive impact on student achievement and success.

“There is nothing more exciting than being a part of a program that encourages the next generation of incredible innovators and contributors to the education space. The landscape of education is changing rapidly and the contribution that these young stars are set to make will no doubt have deep impacts for generations to come.” Jolene Levin, EDmarket Board Chair

NexGen Risings Stars receive invaluable mentoring, press recognition, professional development, and inclusion in a network of EDmarket award winners. Winners will also be celebrated at the annual EDspaces conference in Houston, TX, this November, recognized on the EDmarket website, Essentials magazine, and social media, and interviewed on the Better Learning Podcast.

“We look forward to welcoming the newest generation of captains in our industry. The program supports their leadership development by pairing each NexGen Rising Star with an EDmarket leader giving them a seat at the table with the school market’s top talent.”  Mark Hubbard, EDmarket NexGen Committee Chair
