The Tomorrow25 winners were chosen through an international nomination process, and selected by an international Advisory Board, established by Bentley. Nominations were accepted from business and community leaders, teachers, school administrators, guidance counselors, parents or other students. These exceptional students all demonstrate initiative, citizenship, intelligence, technological savvy, cultural awareness, social responsibility, a passion for the real world of people and organizations, and a commitment to making positive things happen in their communities or schools.

The Tomorrow25 program is an integral part of Bentley's new marketing initiative, "Bentley: Business in a Whole New Light," which also features a strategic partnership with TIME.

The 25 winners will be honored at the inaugural Bentley Leadership Forum on Tuesday, May 10.
