PLANET, the Professional Landcare Network, created two awards to showcase industry professionals’ skills and entrepreneurial spirit.
The Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Award will recognize a female in the landscape industry who has demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit and initiative.
Additionally, the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award will recognized a landscaping industry professional, age 30 and younger, who has demonstrated that same entrepreneurial spirit and initiative as an example to students and other young professionals in the early stages of a landscape industry career.
“PLANET’s Awards Committee created the new awards to recognize the fantastic entrepreneurial spirit that exists in our industry,” says Sabeena Hickman, CAE, CMP, PLANET CEO. “We encourage PLANET members to apply and to nominate their peers so that we can showcase some of the amazing professionals who are making an impact.”
Applications are being accepted through Aug. 15. The awards will be presented at PLANET’s Great Escape event in February 2015.
