ENR's Regional Editions once again are pleased to announce a Call for Entries for their “Top 20 Under 40” competitions, an annual program that honors the contributions of young design and construction professionals to their companies, their professions and their communities.

Industry members are encouraged to nominate their colleagues and peers for the competition or, alternatively, nominate themselves. The only hitch: All nominees must be under the age of 40 as of Jan. 1, 2014.

The program blankets every state in the nation rather than simply those that regularly receive coverage in ENR's seven regional editions.

Here's how the program breaks out:

•ENR California — Calif., Hawaii

•ENR Mid-Atlantic — D.C., Del., Md., Pa., Va., W. Va.

•ENR Midwest — Ill., Ind., Iowa, Ky., Mich., Minn., Mo., Ohio, Wis.

•ENR Mountain States — Colo., Idaho, Kan., Mont., N.D., Neb., S.D., Utah, Wyo.

•ENR New England — Maine, Mass., N.H., R.I., Vt.

•ENR New York — Conn., N.J., N.Y.

•ENR Northwest — Alaska, Ore., Wash.

•ENR Southeast — Ala., Fla., Ga., N.C., P.R., S.C., Tenn.

•ENR Southwest — Ariz., N.M. , Nev.

•ENR Texas & Louisiana — Ark., La., Miss., Okla., Texas

Nominees for each region will be judged by an independent panel comprised of industry professionals.

Readers can enter or learn more about the competition at our Call for Entries Page. Submission deadline is Oct. 1.
