• About the Awards

    The Forty Under 40 Mover & Shaker awards are bestowed annually to 40 individuals under the age of 40 who have shown a strong commitment to the Hudson Valley. A selection committee comprised of former honorees judge nominations based on professional and community achievements. They score each nomination independently of each other and the Chamber, and the scores are then tallied to determine the Top 40. Neither the Chamber staff nor any sponsors or partners influence the judging in any way. The awards ceremony, which is open to the public, is a celebration of these individuals and their accomplishments.
