Bentley College announces Tomorrow25, a competition to identify 25 high-achieving students who are making a difference in their communities. Eligible students must demonstrate initiative, citizenship, intelligence, technological savvy, cultural awareness, social responsibility, a passion for the real work of people and organizations, and a commitment to making positive things happen in their community and school.

 

Recognition and prizes for Tomorrow25 finalists include being featured in an advertisement in Time Magazine that announces the award. The group will be invited to Bentley (all expenses paid) to attend the Bentley Leadership Forum in Boston, an all day event that features organizational leaders who will share their commitment and experience with the audience. Student participants will be able to interact with business leaders from some of the countrys top organizations, meet their fellow award winners, and also connect with Bentley faculty and students.
