Subject: Forty UNDER 40 Prince George's 2014- Now Accepting Nominations

The Prince George’s County Social Innovation Fund (PGCSIF) is pleased to announce the call for nominations for Forty UNDER 40 Prince George’s 2014. Forty UNDER 40 recognizes county residents, under the age of 40, who best exemplify the leadership and talent that exists in Prince George’s County. This is the third year of the prestigious award, which promotes the corollary goal to more actively engage the County’s 21- 39 year old demographic in civic and socially oriented ventures through advisory, board service, and advocacy opportunities. After two successful years of recognizing a total of 80 honorees, nearly 20% have joined non-profit boards and advisory committees throughout the County.
Past honorees have also engaged in policy discussions with the Prince George’s County Executive and his leadership team and the leadership at the Prince George’s County Chamber of Commerce on issues ranging from public education to economic development and residency preferences for employment and contracting.
Nominations for the 2014 Cohort are accepted through October 31, 2013. To qualify, nominees must reside in Prince George’s County, Maryland and be under 40 years of age (as of December 31, 2013). These individuals will have demonstrated success in Arts and Humanities, Business, Education, Health, Public Service, and Science and Engineering. Nominees must demonstrate achievement, commitment, and persistence in their respective professions and/or community involvement. Award recipients will be announced in late-November and recognized in January. We encourage nominations from individuals and organizations. Self-nominations are also welcomed.
The Prince George’s County Social Innovation Fund works as a catalyst for social impact in Prince George’s County. Its mission is to build social capital by investing in new approaches to solving social challenges in Prince George’s County.
