20 Under 40 - Quincy Herald-Whig | Illinois & Missouri News, Sports

The Quincy Herald-Whig is seeking nominations for its "20 under 40" awards that honor local business and community leaders.

The Herald-Whig is creating this special publication to honor people under the age of 40 in west-central Illinois and northeast Missouri who make differences in many ways. We are asking our readers to submit the names of people who have been successful in the business world while also being active leaders in our communities.

Please take a moment to fill out the form below and tell us about someone under the age of 40 who you believe should be recognized in print and online by The Herald-Whig. The nomination form will be used in the selection process.

Candidates should have achieved measurable professional success. Also include the nominee's involvement in community service and volunteering.

Candidates must reside within The Herald-Whig's circulation area (Adams, Hancock, Brown and Pike in Illinois; Lewis, Clark, Marion, Knox, Shelby, Scotland, Pike and Ralls in Missouri).

Nominees must be 39 years of age or younger as of Sept. 28, 2014.

Information collected is confidential and will not be released without prior approval.

All nominations must be made by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, July 16.

    'I feel violated': Search continues for two men involved in Quincy home invasion

    Tuesday, July 22 2014 10:41 AM EDT2014-07-22 14:41:18 GMT
    Jon Matuszak didn’t think twice about going into his residence at 900 Locust around 10 a.m. Monday morning. Matuszak had just returned from running an errand when a neighbor tried to stop him before going into the house. The neighbor told him that two men wearing white gloves and white masks — one of them carrying a baseball bat — had just entered the back door of the house. Knowing his older brother, Patrick, was sleeping inside, Jon Matuszak rushed inside.

It was disabled in March as city officials sought to save money by turning off a pair of traffic signals at low-traffic intersections.
