ENR has announced the winners of its Top 20 Under 40 competition in the MidAtlantic region, which celebrates the excellence of young design and construction professionals in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

This year’s call for nominations yielded an impressive collection of entries from around the region. An independent jury pored over the entries, judging candidates on the basis of their career experience; industry leadership; community service; and other factors.

"I am very excited to see so many strong leaders coming up the ranks in our industry," commented one judge.

Profiles of the winners will appear in a special March 25, 2013, MidAtlantic edition of ENR.
