Do you own a business? Have you developed and implemented an idea that brought meaningful change to the pest management industry?

These are the questions being asked by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) in consideration for its new Young Entrepreneur Award, presented by Rentokil Pest Control, the organization has announced.

The award recognizes young entrepreneurs working in the professional pest management industry who have helped create or develop an industry business and/or those who have stewarded a meaningful industry concept to fruition, NPMA said. Self-nominations are accepted.

Applicants will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Notable contributions made to his or her company in a management level capacity
  • Contributions to the pest management industry
  • Personal leadership and community involvement

An independent panel of judges will select one award recipient who will be recognized at NPMA's PestWorld 2012 Convention, October 17-20 in Boston.
