HOW ARE THE TOP 20 CHOSEN?

We expect to receive more than 300 nominations. But don’t get discouraged! If you do not receive the award this year, we encourage you to apply again.

A panel of independent judges scores all nominations individually.

The South Carolina Black Pages’ Top 20 Under 40 nominees are judged on their business success and their achievements as an active member of our community. A selection panel is put together by Community Leaders, Business Owners, and Corporate Executives to select those who meet the Qualifications and Criteria. The Panel bases their decisions on a scoring sheet designed specifically with
the Qualifications and Criteria listed above.

Judges are looking to assess whether the nominee is outstanding in their field of expertise, educational credentials, awards and distinctions, and community involvement. Judges look for people who actively participate and take leadership roles in the community over those who simply hold membership in various groups. Be sure to include detailed information about the results of the volunteerism.

No, your references will only be contacted if a judge requires more detailed information on a specific item.

Recipients will be notified via email no than on or before April 30th of their award. The names of The South Carolina Black Pages’ 20 Under 40 Award Recipients will also be announced in the South Carolina Black Pages.

We receive many outstanding applications each year. The selection process is quantitative confidential. If your nominee is not selected, we encourage you to nominate them again next year.
