Winners Announced for Surrey’s Top 25 Under 25 Award Winners -Youngest Youth Winner is 11 years old

Surrey’s Top 25 under 25 Award Winners have been selected by the Surrey Board of Trade.

Winners will be celebrated at a digital reception celebrating the recipients of the 10th Annual Surrey’s Top 25 Under 25 Awards, an event that celebrates the incredible initiatives of Surrey’s youth 25 years old or younger. The 25 winners were chosen based upon their business or community achievements, leadership ability, community involvement, professional achievements, and uniqueness of their business or community projects.

“The in-person event is usually held in late April, but due to the COVID-19 situation, had to be postponed,” said Anita Huberman, CEO, Surrey Board of Trade. “The event will still be inspiring and amazing with new event ingredients to celebrate the leadership by Surrey’s youth – and this year we have an entrepreneurial winner who is only 11 years old!”

CBC host Dan Burritt will be the Master of Ceremonies.
The digital award reception will be held on Thursday, September 10, 2020 from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
