4 Under 40 Awards

Harvey County 4 Under 40 Awards

At Emerge: Harvey County, we believe that it is important to recognize the accomplishments of young leaders in our community, so in 2022 we started the 4 Under 40 Awards. The 2024 awards will be 3rd year in a row where we will award 4 individuals from Harvey County with a “4 Under 40” award!


The purpose of these awards is to recognize young adults who give of their time and talents to better the community around them. Winners will be selected based on specific scoring criteria according to engagement, leadership, and service. Any young adult who lives and/or works in Harvey County between the ages of 18 and 40 is eligible to receive this award – they are not required to be a member of Emerge: Harvey County.


    Here is how the process will work:

  1. If you would like to nominate a young adult for the 4 Under 40 award, you can download a 4 Under 40 Nomination Form_2024 OR click here to fill out nomination form online.

  2. Once nominations are submitted, the nominee will receive an email from our organization to notify them of their nomination. They will be asked to respond to a few follow-up questions.
  3. After follow-up responses are received, a selection committee will review submissions and choose award winners based upon specific selection criteria.
  4. Once winners are selected, finalists will be notified and invited to the Emerge Annual Banquet. This event will take place August 29th at Son Wray Ranch, from 6:30-9:00 pm.
