Time to recognise Kenya’s Rising Stars

The CfC Stanbic Rising Star Awards aim to recognise aspirational young individuals who show an unshakable persistence in achieving their goals. In association with Engen, Airtel and Who’s Who in Kenya, the Rising Star Program will return in 2015 to promote Kenya’s most talented young leaders.

Originating in South Africa in 2012, the Rising Star Program was launched in Kenya in June 2014 as an engine to recognise, celebrate and connect Kenya’s young talented people. By raising awareness and creating opportunities to grow and nurture Kenya’s talent, the Rising Star Awards have become a significant vehicle for organisations to identify their exceptional individuals. These notables are then encouraged to become tomorrow’s opinion leaders, and an inspiration to their peers.

With 2015 only a stone’s throw away, the time has come again for you to have your say – let us know who you think deserves to be recognised. Whether they are a colleague, friend, a family member, now’s the time to nominate Kenya’s next Rising Star. Do you think you have what it takes? Why not nominate yourself?

Nominations are open for individuals aged between 28 and 40. To participate, visit the Kenya Rising Star website and complete the “Enter a Rising Star” form. Nominations will close at the end of January 2015, so don’t delay!
