Nom­i­nate some­one for The State’s 20 Un­der 40 class

The State (Sunday) - - Local - The State

The State Me­dia Co. is ac­cept­ing nom­i­na­tions for its 16th 20 Un­der 40 class of Mid­lands lead­ers.

The pro­gram hon­ors 20 peo­ple un­der age 40 who are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in their com­mu­ni­ties. Through the years, The State has rec­og­nized 300 peo­ple from a va­ri­ety of pro­fes­sions and all walks of life.

We need your help to se­lect the 2019 class of young lead­ers. Do you know a ris­ing busi­ness or pro­fes­sional star in the Mid­lands who is younger than 40 and is mak­ing a mark with both pro­fes­sional suc­cess and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment? If so, we in­vite you to nom­i­nate her or him.

Nom­i­nees must pri­mar­ily con­duct busi­ness in the 10 coun­ties of the Mid­lands and be un­der age 40 as of Jan. 1, 2019.

The dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. Win­ners will be no­ti­fied in early Jan­uary. Names will not be made pub­lic un­til the 20 Un­der 40 spe­cial sec­tion is pub­lished in early 2019. To nom­i­nate some­one, visit thes­­ness. Here’s some ad­vice for nom­i­na­tions:
