Nominations are now being accepted to honor this year's class of outstanding young adults in Rhinelander. Now in its third year, the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce (RACC) and Forward Rhinelander want to recognize ten more young adults making a difference where we live.
The Rhinelander area prides itself on being a great place to live, work and play - for people of all ages. A vibrant part of that mix is Rhinelander's talented class of young professionals.
Now through March 20th, nominations will be accepted online. Nominees will be judged in three categories: business success, mentorship/leadership, and civic/philanthropic activities. Winners will be profiled on the Rhinelander Chamber and Forward Rhinelander websites, recognized in local media, and celebrated at the April Business After 5 at the Rhinelander Country Club and receive 2 free tickets to Hops & Vines (4/18).
Last year, Forward Rhinelander received more than 35 nominations as part of the Top 10 Under 40 program. 2019 winners included:
● Nick Cirilli
● Christie Konzela
● Brenda Lee
● Robyn Metz
● Amy O’Melia
● Brian Paulson
● Steve & Erica Sauer
● Toni Van Doren
● Erika Warning
● Ryan Zietlow
Anyone can nominate a young adult for recognition in the Top 10 Under 40 - an employer, colleague, fellow member of a community group, or friend. To be eligible, honorees must be age 39 or younger on March 20, 2020, and live or work within School District of Rhinelander boundaries.
The deadline is March 20, 2020. A group of selected judges will review applications and choose 2020's Top 10 Under 40.
