As the talent pool of young professionals throughout the tri-county region continues to grow, it is time once again to honor and recognize these individuals through NNY Business magazine’s annual 20 Under 40 awards.

The 20 Under 40 awards honor 20 young professionals under the age of 40 who exemplify leadership, community involvement and professionalism, people who are making an impact on the area either through their jobs or their volunteer activities.

Over the course of the past 12 years, the magazine has honored entrepreneurs, teachers, attorneys, real estate agents, a dairy farmer, a state trooper, an architect, a community planner, a restaurant owner and more. The list continues to grow as we showcase the emerging leaders of Northern New York and the 13th annual awards will again honor these talents that support our communities each day.

“We believe that recognizing these individuals, not only for their professional contributions, but also for their volunteer and after-hours efforts spent on the betterment of the community is important,” said Alec E. Johnson, editor & publisher. “These individuals do what they do, not for recognition but to make the north country a better place to live. They aren’t going to pat themselves on the back, so we will do that for them.”

The 13th annual 20 Under 40 class will be selected by a committee consisting of editors and staff of NNY Business magazine. The strength of nominations plays an important role in how each nominee is judged and selected, including traits that showcase hard work, selflessness, volunteerism and how they have overcome challenges in their career fields to accomplish their goals.
