This program was designed to be a community initiative that will recognize the achievements and contributions of young professionals in the Greater Wausau area. The goal is to recognize 20 people who are 40 years old or younger who influence the region’s business and community landscape. That recognition will include exclusive online, video and print coverage as well as a celebration luncheon.
Here's how it will work:
Judging: In early October, five judges from the community will gather to review the nominations and determine which 20 nominees best fit the criteria.
Recognition: Each weekday beginning October 24, Daily Herald Media will recognize in its coverage one of the 20 exceptional young professionals. And on November 13, the community will gather at the Grand to celebrate and recognize the area's 20 Under Forty.
