Nominations for the 25th annual 20 Under 40 Leadership Recognition event that salutes young, dynamic leaders under the age of 40 will be accepted through July 13, 2020. The 20 Under 40 program focuses on individuals in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan who have distinguished themselves in their careers and/or as volunteers in their community.
Nominating is fast, easy and a great way to recognize deserving young leaders. To submit your nomination, go to www.20under40toledo.com and complete the electronic form by Monday, July 13, 2020. Minimal information is required—name, company and email address. To be eligible, candidates must be under 40 years of age as of June 30, 2020.
Those nominated are required to complete a personal profile including information on their career achievements and community involvement. An independent panel of judges then selects 20 candidates for recognition.
While 2020 has been an unusual year, the opportunity to discover greatness among young leaders is immense. Please nominate deserving individuals for their contribution and dedication to their professional life or to volunteerism in their community. Nominations from all around northwestern Ohio and southeast Michigan are encouraged.
