Twenty Under 40 Awards Nomination

Nominate an exceptional leader!

Since 2007, the Twenty under 40 Awards has recognized exceptional leaders under the age of 40. The program is coordinated by the Reno Tahoe Young Professionals Network with co-sponsors, the Northern Nevada Business Weekly and KOLO-8TV. Each year a group of 20 talented, accomplished, very involved young leaders are chosen from nominations received.

New this year!

We’re excited to announce new features to this year’s awards program.

  • A big welcome to Swift Communications and KOLO News 8, our new co-sponsors. Look for news and event details in the Northern Nevada Business Weekly!
  • The names of the 20 winners will be announced on the evening of the Awards Ceremony.  A “Finalist” group of 40 will be announced in the Northern Nevada Business Weekly in mid-September.
  • Twenty charitable organizations will be the recipients of funds raised at the Awards Ceremony. Awards finalists will be actively involved in raising funds for the pre-selected organizations.
  • A fee is required to complete a nomination. The fees are $10 for members (nominator or nominee) and $20 for non-members (neither the nominator or nominee).

This year’s program will be one for the ages!
