40 Under Forty 20th Anniversary Celebration & Awards Program
This is the 20th annual 40 Under FORTY Awards Program recognizing 40 people under the age of 40 who have excelled in the workplace and in the community. We invite you to participate in this event by nominating an outstanding member of the community you feel is deserving of this recognition.
The event is November 16 at The SRC Arena from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m.! This year’s celebration will begin with networking and include an awards program to honor the winners.
Judging: A panel of independent judges will review each nomination submitted and assign a score to each category (Business Accomplishments, Civic Leadership, and Achievements & Awards). This is done privately, and the judges don’t share information. The scores are totaled and added together by BizEventz Director to determine the 40 honorees.
If you win: Winners will be notified within 2-4 weeks after the nomination deadline. All honorees will be invited as guests of BizEventz to the 40 Under FORTY 20th Anniversary Celebration & Awards Program and recognized with an award. In addition, the Business Journal News Network will recognize those selected in advertisements promoting the event and in a Commemorative Publication that will be distributed at the event.
If you are not chosen: The nominator will be notified within 2-4 weeks after the nomination deadline. If the nominator would like BizEventz to notify the nominee, the nominator must request that BizEventz send notification. It will not be shared with the nominee unless they win.
