As Gambit Weekly prepares its annual "40 Under 40" issue honoring individuals having a positive impact on the metropolitan area, we turn once again to our greatest asset: our readers. Who do you think deserves recognition? Help us find the best of the best -- teachers, artists, activists, business people, New Orleanians who are changing this city for the better. The requirements are simple. Nominees must be 39 years of age or younger, live in the New Orleans and be worthy of distinction. Tell us about their background, accomplishments and future plans; be sure to include any additional information our selection committee might find useful.
Elected officials are not eligible. Deadline for nominations is Sept. 15; winners will be published in our Oct. 21 issue. Send nominations to 40 Under 40, c/o Gambit Weekly, Attn: Shala Carlson, 3923 Bienville St., NOLA, 70119. Fax nominations to 483-3116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. No phone calls, please.
