As Gambit Weekly prepares its annual "40 Under 40" issue honoring individuals who have had a positive impact on the New Orleans area, we turn for suggestions to our greatest asset: our readers. Nominate the teachers, artists, entrepreneurs, innovators, activists and citizens you think deserve recognition for changing the metropolitan area for the better.
Nominees must be 39 years old or younger, live in the New Orleans area and be worthy of the honor. In a letter, tell us about your nominee's background, accomplishments and future plans, and be sure to include their exact birth date, your daytime telephone number and any additional information that might be useful to our selection committee. Elected officials are not eligible.
Deadline for nominations is Oct. 6. Winners will be announced in our Nov. 7 issue. Send nominations to 40 Under 40, c/o Gambit Weekly, Attn: Kandace Graves, 3923 Bienville St., New Orleans, LA 70119. You also can fax nominations to 483-3116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. No telephone nominations, please. Correction In Best of New Orleans® (Aug. 29) we failed to include a second location of Electric Ladyland, which won Best Body Piercing/Tattoo Parlor. The correct addresses are 610 Frenchmen St., 947-8286 and 575 S. Carrollton Ave., 866-3859; www.electricladyland.net. Gambit Weekly regrets the error.
