Rules and Guidelines

It’s that time of year again! LA’s 40 Under 40 has begun, and Uplift LA is taking nominations for the top 40 rising professionals in the greater Lewiston-Auburn Area. Please see rules for nominations and voting below.

Rules for Nominations

  • You do not have to be a Chamber or Uplift LA member to be nominated for an award (but are welcome to join either at any time)
  • Past winners may be nominated again, but not in the same category they previously won
  • Nominees may win no more than three times total, regardless of category
  • Nominees must be under 40 as of October 1, 2018 (exceptions can be made for those with an October 1 birthday)
    • There is no minimum age for nomination – if someone wants to nominate a teenager or elementary school student who is doing awesome things in the community, they are welcome to do so

Rules for Voting

  • Only one vote per valid email address will be accepted
    • The first submission from each valid email address will be used, all others will be removed
  • Voting is completely open to the public and should be shared with as many people as possible in the community
