Rising Stars Award

Celebrating the 'Year of Women in Manufacturing'

NJMEP and its partners are working together to highlight influential women manufacturing leaders that continue to drive the ‘MADE in New Jersey’ forward. 

As a Manufacturer Leader, take a moment to reflect on your company and the team you have created! Is there a woman in your company that you would like to recognize? Has their work been exceptional and impactful? Do you want to see them growing in their career? Do you want to celebrate the positive impacts on your company?

Take a moment and submit a nomination for the Rising Stars Award as a way to celebrate and honor the women leaders in the 'MADE in New Jersey' manufacturing industry:   

Innovator of the Year

The Innovator of the Year can be an individual or group of people (single professional, team, organization, non-profit, association, entity, etc.) using innovation to improve business, better the NJ manufacturing community, or positively impact a STEM-related field.

Examples of innovation include creative new devices, ideas, inventions, processes, product enhancements and solutions to problems.

Made In NJ Honor Roll

These awards are given out to non-manufacturers who have had a positive impact on Manufacturing. This award is a way to recognize the non-manufacturers for their contributions to manufacturing. (i.e. Legislators, Educators, others.)
