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. 27, 2015.

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

All nominations must be made by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, July 15.

    Their derby names are marvelous, their athletic abilities impressive and their concern for the community inspirational. It's been a wild and crazy five-year journey for the Dark River Derby Coalition, Quincy's nationally ranked women's roller derby team. It has evolved from little more than a curiosity in 2011 to a highly popular organization that is as well known off the track for its charitable heart as it is on the track for its well-placed elbows and jet-like jammers.
