The deadline for nominations for the LaRue County 20 Under 30 Class of 2019 is only three days away.

“20 Under 30” is a program designed to honor the young people in our community. 20 individuals under the age of 30 will be recognized for their outstanding accomplishments in their respective category. The ten categories are as follows:

Agriculture: Those who excel in any field of Ag whether that be Ag Safety, Ag Development, farm work, working with livestock, or any other Ag related field.

Art & Style: Those who express their creativity in the realm of art and/or fashion. An upcoming Picasso or Audrey Hepburn. Someone who inspires others with his or her chosen medium.

Business & Commerce: Someone who owns and/or operates their business. The success of a business can be contributed to this person, and they strive to improve upon a business where need be.

Community Service: A citizen of the community that stands out in regard to serving others. Whether they be a part of a service project, outreach program, or simply look for ways to serve in their daily lives.

Education: Those who educate other for the sake of bettering their students lives. They can be a school teacher, a class instructor, or someone in the community that uses their platform to educate others.

Entertainment & Music: Those who use their gifts to entertain others. Talent show winners, recording artists, or those who bring a light to the community through entertaining others.

Food & Drink: Individuals with culinary gifts that use their talents to craft new and inventive food and drinks, or those who improve upon classics. This category is for those who take making food and drinks to the next level.

Multimedia: Film, photography, video editing, light and sound. These are just a few of the multiple facets of multimedia. Multimedia is for those who excel at digital media.

Professional Services: Accountant, banker, nurse, security guard. The category of professional services is for those who have worked hard to achieve their title, and continue to work hard to prove they deserve it.

Sports & Athletics: Those who dominate the competition. This category is for top tier athletes on and off the court; whether they are a coach who dedicates their time to assure victory, or an athlete who stands out among others.

Two winners will be selected for each category. However, we need your help finding worthy candidates. If you know an individual that excels in any one of these categories, we urge you to nominate them so they may be honored for their accomplishments.

The winners will receive an awards dinner featuring a plaque presentation, and will be featured in the “20 Under 30” special section that highlights their achievements.

Last year’s ‘20 Under 30’ winners are not eligible to be nominated, and the same will go for all future ‘20 Under 30’ winning classes.

Nominees must be residents of or have previously lived within LaRue County to be eligible. Nominees must be under the age of 30 at the time of nomination.
