Jayhawk Area Council Now Accepting Nominations for the 2017 Topeka’s Top 20 Under 40 Honorees
Each year “Topeka’s Top 20 Under 40” program honors 20 individuals under the age of 40 based on their leadership and achievement both professionally and as members of the Topeka/Shawnee County community. A selection committee, comprised of established leaders within the Topeka area, determines the final 20 honorees based on the applications received from the nominees. The honorees will be recognized at an awards banquet on November 16, 2017 at the Downtown Ramada.
“Topeka’s Top 20 Under 40 annual selection is our opportunity to honor local leaders and demonstrate to younger generations the qualities that great leaders possess,” said Wayne Pancoast, Scout Executive/CEO of Jayhawk Area Council Boy Scouts.
The Jayhawk Area Council encourages the nomination of any individual under the age of 40 that shows leadership, work-ethic, strong character, and service to the Topeka/Shawnee County community. Nominations are encouraged for young leaders that have been nominated and applied in the past, but were not selected as an honoree.
