Over 22,000 young professionals are putting their talents to work in Sheboygan County, moving, shaking and crashing into our shores! The Next Wave Young
Professionals Awards celebrate the best of the bunch. Nominees between the ages of 21 - 40 (as of May 2017) are eligible to be considered by a panel of judges from the Sheboygan County Chamber Board of Directors and past winners.
