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 to our readers for suggestions of who should be included. 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 (there is no age minimum), 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. Be sure to include the nominee's exact birth date and a contact number for them, 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. 8. Winners will be announced in our Nov. 6 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 (put 40 Under 40 in the subject line). No telephone nominations, please.
