ENR's Regional Editions are proud to announce the launching of this year's Top 20 Under 40 contest. Now going into its seventh year, the Top 20 Under 40 contest recognizes the A/E/C industry's young professionals who represent the "Best-of-the-Best" in their construction and design careers by giving back to their industry and communities.

Like our annual Best Projects contest, the Top 20 Under 40 program—which covers all 50 states plus Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico—is conducted on a regional basis, with entrants competing against other young professional working within one of ENR's geographic coverage areas, listed below. Those individuals chosen to be honored in each region will be featured in a story within one of ENR's Regional Editions, beginning in January.

Also like our Best Projects contest, ENR's Regional editors assemble a group of independent judges who review and score each potential Top 20 Under 40 honoree, based on the candidate's industry experience, leadership skills and community service. 

You can nominate anyone whom you believe exhibits company and industry leadership, career progress, community involvement and who is involved with creating landmark projects for their region. Moreover, you can nominate a fellow employee of your firm, someone who works at another firm, or even yourself! (Don't worry - the nominator isn't made public!)

So go ahead and get started nominating a deserving young professional today! Click here to get started nominating someone, or to get additional information about the contest. Additionally, you may email us at enr.regional.contests@enr.com.
