We're proud to announce the second-annual Progressive Grocer GenNext Award. As grocery’s premier publication for nearly 100 years, we’ve always helped our readers stay ahead of what’s next, covering the changes and trends that will guide us into the future. We want to stay true to that mission by honoring those who are on the path to become influential leaders through their innovation, commitment, and involvement in the retail grocery industry.
Progressive Grocer’s GenNext Award recognizes individuals under the age of 40 who have demonstrated:
A commitment to a career in either the grocery or consumer packaged goods industries
Innovation through the work they are doing
Leadership (including the capacity to inspire and lead others, and a commitment to learn from others)
A commitment to getting involved in the industry (i.e., through associations) and helping out with charities or in the community
Entries are limited to grocers or consumer packaged goods companies based in the United States.
2019 Deadlines: Nomination form is live from the beginning of June with the deadline for submissions August 9, 2019. Winners will appear in PG's November 2019 issue and will be honored at our first GenNext Symposium, Dec. 5-6, 2019, in Atlanta.
