Entry Deadline Extended for County Executive’s Elite 40 under 40 Program in Search of Region’s ‘Best of the Best’ for 2016

If you or someone you know has made significant contributions at work or to the quality of life in southeast Michigan and think he or she – or you – should be recognized for the good work, you have a little extra time to make that happen.

The deadline for nominations for the Oakland County Executive’s Elite 40 under 40 Class of 2016 has been extended until Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. County Executive L. Brooks Patterson started the program in 2012 to honor young professionals and thought leaders who excel in their field and have demonstrated dynamic leadership. Those nominated have until Dec. 9 at 5 p.m. to complete their entry.

“With the holidays upon us, I want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to nominate one or several of these young women and men, or themselves,” Patterson said. “We have an abundance of talented entrepreneurs, teachers and other thought leaders who are shaping the future of our region. We’re looking for the best and brightest the region has to offer.”

To submit a candidate, go to www.AdvantageOakland.com/Elite40. Nominees must live or work in Oakland County to be eligible. A panel of judges will review all completed applications and reduce the number to the top 40 entrants. Of that group, three candidates who scored the highest will be placed before the public for an online vote to determine the winner.

The winner will introduce Patterson at his State of the County address on Feb. 10, 2016. The winner will also receive:

  • A feature article or video about their business/volunteer agency in Oakland County PROSPER
  • Attend three Oakland County signature events: Economic Outlook Luncheon, Quality 
People/Quality County Awards and the Business Roundtable Annual Meeting
  • Promotion on AdvantageOakland.com, the county’s economic development website
