Rising Stars are emerging leaders from 25 to 40 years old, men and women who have built a commendable record in public life and are poised to do much more.

We welcome applications from those who excel in business, academia, science, technology, the arts and all elements of civic life. Successful candidates will enjoy opportunities to share their talents and widen their reach as models of excellence in civic engagement.

One top Rising Star will be honored with the Carrie Chapman Catt Leadership Award.

Our unique application process asks candidates to reflect on their accomplishments and on their vision for Houston’s future. Mindful of trends in modern communication, several questions call for a response in the fashion of a Tweet!
