Gambit is looking for the best and brightest area residents under 40 years old to be honored in our annual "40 Under 40" issue. We are looking for nominees who are outstanding in their field, including business, community service, education, health and science, the arts and sports. Please help us identify this year's honorees.

Nominations should include the name and age of the nominee (birth dates are appreciated), a contact number and email address for them, their occupation, any community organizations or volunteer groups they support, and why they are a good candidate for this honor. Also include your name and phone number. There is no minimum age requirement. You can nominate as many people as you feel deserve the honor.

Elected officials are not eligible.

Submit your nomination in writing to Kandace Power Graves at or fax to 483-3116. Deadline for submissions is Oct. 7.

Winners will be announced in the Nov. 2 issue of Gambit.
