Some times there is not enough time in a day—or a contest—which is why we are extending the tristate region's 20 Under 40 competition for a few more weeks. We've heard that some of you would like to enter but need more time to participate in this popular competition that honors the industry's rising stars.

The new and final deadline is Friday, Nov. 8.

We hope this is enough time for you to gather information and nominate your candidates via our online form. But please don't wait until the last minute as this is the final extension.

To recap the process, anyone can nominate anyone—you can even nominate yourself—by filling out a digital entry form. An independent industry-based jury will review all the entries based on each candidate's experience, leadership skills and community service. The top-20 winners will be featured in the Jan. 27, 2014 issue of ENR New York.
