Avenue Top 40 Under 40
Top 40 under 40
Every year since 1998, Calgary’s most exceptional young leaders have been recognized by our Top 40 Under 40 program. Based on hundreds of nominations from Avenue readers, the Top 40 Under 40 list is selected by a blue-ribbon panel of judges. The final list represents a group of people under 40 years of age who excel in their chosen professions and who are shaping the city in business, the arts, community-building or the non-profit sector. In 2009, the project was also adopted by Avenue Edmonton, which now generates its own Top 40 Under 40 list for the provincial capital.
TEach year’s list is nearly 12 months in the making, involving careful deliberations. The project culminates in a special Avenue edition each November, featuring profiles and photographs of our 40 list-makers, as well as a signature event to announce the new Top 40 class, and two additional events during the year for the current Top 40 class and Top 40 alumni.
