The nomination process for this year's 20 Under 40 competition has begun so if you know of a rising star in the AEC industry—or if you are one—click here to enter. The deadline is September 1.

This annual contest honors 20 young industry professionals who will be under the age of 40 as of January 1, 2015. Each winner will be chosen by an independent jury of industry executives, using criteria including community service, industry experience and leadership skills.

There’s no limit to the number of entries each firm or person can submit. In case of duplicate entries, however, only the most recent submission form will be used. Candidates who entered last year but did not win are allowed to re-enter this year as long as they still meet the age requirement. There is no entry fee.

The top-20 winners will be briefly profiled in an upcoming ENR New York issue. For more information, see the digital entry form — and good luck to all.
