Berkshire Community College will hold its annual 40 Under Forty awards celebration from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, under a large tent near the Paterson Field House on BCC’s main campus. Masks are required inside the tent and recommended outside the tent.

40 Under Forty honors millennials and Generation Z professionals in the Berkshires who have shown their support for the region through leadership, community service and a dedication to improving the quality of life for those living and working in the community.

Nominees must be 39 years old or younger as of April 1 of the award year and must work in Berkshire County.

Because COVID-19 caused last year’s event to be rescheduled, this year’s celebration will honor 2020 winners.

Tickets cost $65 and are available at

Applications for the 2022 cohort will open in fall 2021. For more information, contact the Office of Advancement at 413-236-2185 or
