Central Penn Business Journal is COVID conscious and will be making educated decisions on whether events are virtual or in-person per CDC recommendations and state and county guidance. For now, events for 2021 are moving forward as virtual but as soon as we can come back together in person to celebrate excellence we look forward to doing so.

How can I be considered for a Forty Under 40 award?

Nominations can be made by anyone, including yourself. An application is automatically emailed to all nominees and must be completed in order to be considered for this award. A letter of recommendation is not required, but is strongly encouraged to assist the judges in making their decision.

To be eligible, applicants must live in or work in one of the following counties; Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry or York at the time of judging.

How often can I be considered? 

Forty Under 40 winners can only win one time. Second year nominations and applications will not be considered. 

 

Who are the judges and what are they looking for when selecting the Forty Under 40 winners?

Winners are selected by an outside panel of judges that includes previous winners. Judges look at an individual’s professional accomplishments, community service and commitment to inspiring change. It is helpful to have at least one letter of recommendation from someone that can speak to all three of these achievements.

Should I have a letter of recommendation sent?

Past judges have told us that the letter(s) of recommendation is helpful particularly when they are not familiar with the candidate. Up to 3 letters of recommendations can be emailed to cpbjevents@bridgetowermedia.com. Please save all letters of recommendation as PDFs labeled with your name (or organization) led by the category or event you are being nominated for.  The letter will be paired to your application when it is received.

Do the winners have to say something?

Winners do not speak live during the event, but will be contacted to be profiled in a multi-media video that will be aired during the event. 

I’m a Forty Under 40 award winner, what now? 

Sit tight, a member of our team will contact you soon with any additional details.

If I’m a winner, do I need to purchase a ticket?

You do not need to purchase a ticket for yourself as an honoree. All other attendees must purchase a ticket. Sponsorship packages are available to purchase for those wanting large groups of tickets and additional benefits.

Can I buy an ad in the publication?

The Forty Under 40 program is supported through sponsorships. The ads you see in the magazine are part of the sponsorship packages. Please email shuettner@bridgetowermedia.com.

I purchased a ticket but have not received it? 

Tickets will be sent to you and everyone who registers the day before and the day of the event via email. 

Remember, tickets can only be opened on one device, if you open it on your phone but then try to open it on your computer it will not work. 

Contact cpbjevents@bridgetowermedia.com if you have any questions issues.
