Welcome to ENR Regionals' Top 20 Under 40 competition! Each year, ENR's regional editions celebrate the excellence of young construction professionals. In early 2013, each region will highlight 20 individuals under the age of 40 who represent the "Best-of-the-Best" in their construction and design careers by giving back to their industry and communities. For this Top 20 Under 40 program, ENR's regional editions will be accepting nominations from all 50 states, Washington D.C., and Puerto Rico.

You can nominate anyone who works at any level of the design or construction industry who has had an impact in the industry or their company, who exhibit qualities such as leadership, career progress, community involvement and creating landmark projects for their region. You can nominate an employee of your firm, or someone who works at another firm. You can even nominate yourself (the nominator isn't made public). Independent juries of industry leaders from each of ENR's 10 regional editions will judge the nominees based on the candidate's industry experience, leadership skills and community service. Those individuals selected to appear in each region's top 20 will be featured in a story within the regional editions of ENR. ENR’s Regional Editions encourage a diverse pool of candidates for its Top 20 Under 40 competition.
