The Jayhawk Area Council announced Wednesday that nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 “Topeka’s Top 20 Under 40” awards.
The 20 Under 40 program provides the Jayhawk Area Council with the opportunity to honor the leaders around us and to demonstrate to younger generations, the qualities great leaders possess, all while raising funds to directly support the Council’s outreach program and assistance to individuals. Nomination forms can be accessed at: www.jayhawkcouncil.org/
Through the “20 Under 40” program, a total of 20 honorees, all under the age of 40, will be selected based on their leadership and achievement both professionally and as members of the Topeka/Shawnee County area community. A selection committee, comprised of established leaders within the Topeka area, will determine the final 20 candidates based upon the applications received from the nominees. These 20 final candidates will be named the 2015 Honorees and will be recognized at an awards banquet in November 2015.
Repeat nominations are encouraged for young leaders that have been nominated and applied in the past, but were not selected as an honoree. It can be quite difficult for the selection committee to make decisions due to the wide variety of interests, backgrounds and professional experience of each nomination. This allows previous applicants to continue to be contenders for future awards, even if they nominate themselves.
It is the Council’s hope that all past, present and future “20 Under 40” honorees will continue to stay involved with, feel more connected to, and continue to do the great work within our community that led to their selection.

The Nomination period closes on May 31st at 11:59 PM.
