The 2024 nominations form will open in early 2024.

Here is what you need to know to narrow down your nominations for the 2024 40 Under 40.

40 Under 40 recognizes 40 leaders under the age of 40 who have made a significant impact in their business and community early in their careers.

Who is eligible?
Individuals must work in the Greater Omaha, Lincoln and Western Iowa region. They must be 39 or younger as of December 31, 2023.

Who can nominate?
Nominations can be submitted by coworkers, colleagues, supervisors, family, friends, or people can self-nominate. In order to get a thorough nomination, you may gather information from the nominee. Your nomination will be the main source of information, so make sure it is thorough and detailed.

What will the judges be scoring on?
MBJ judges will be putting heavy consideration into:

  • Early career success – Has this person quickly climbed the ranks or led important initiatives? Did they start and grow a business from the ground up?
  • Leadership – What have they done to stand out from their peers?
  • Career potential – What has this person accomplished to show they are on a path to future success?
  • Community involvement – What community service has this person participated in?
    What have they done to show commitment to the community?

2024 Nominations will open early 2024. Check the MBJ issues or here for future 40 Under 40 Nomination information as it comes available.

Quality, not quantity of nominations is what counts. Thorough nominations that include supporting documents and create a whole picture of the nominee are encouraged.
