From The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce:

The Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce will be revealing this year’s HYPE Award winners in a live virtual event on December 9th, 2020 at 5:30PM. The HYPE Awards highlight professionals under age 40 who demonstrate success in their career and industry and are making a positive change in the Greater Binghamton community.

Nominations were submitted by a mix of colleagues, supervisors, businesses, and organizations. The award categories are as follows: Business Services, Creative, Education & Training, Health & Wellness, Law & Government, Non-Profit, Service Industry, Skilled Trades, and STEM.

The last category, Mentor to a YP is a special category where the honoree does not need to be a young professional but must influence and help establish YP’s in their professional journey.

We invite the community to read about them on the Greater Binghamton Chamber Facebook Page. Everyone is invited to watch the awards live via Zoom.
