Over the past thirteen years, Edmontonians has profiled 300 dynamic,
young entrepreneurs in its Sizzling Twenty under 30 special
editions. The tradition will continue in September when the faces
and stories of another 20 men and women
from the Capital Region will fill our pages.
Our Sizzlers are self-starters, promising professionals and motivated community volunteers. They are dynamic, urban and modern trendsetters. They frequent the hottest places—or own them! They are the products of our colleges, universities and life's experiences—driven by the need to succeed.
The Sizzling 20 are nominated by Edmonton's business leaders, professional mentors, educators and interested individuals— including proud parents. Edmontonians' Sizzling Twenty under 30 encourages other young Albertans to reach beyond their grasp.
Nominees must be under the age of 30 as of September 30, 2016. Those selected as Sizzlers must present proof of age to the profiler at the interview.
Nominees must be residents within the
Edmonton Captial Region.
In addition to excellence in their chosen careers or further education pursuits, Sizzlers must be involved in volunteer activities. If no volunteer activity is indicated, the nominee is automatically rejected.
All applicable fields must be filled out on the Nomination Form.
This is not a popularity contest: Selection is based on the level of achievement and dedication to a chosen field of endeavour. Multiple nominations, providing different perspectives of the potential Sizzler's accomplishments, are welcome. However, overall, they do not constitute more influence on the final selections than single nominations.
Self-nominations are welcome.
Ten women and 10 men are selected annually from diverse career paths and economic sectors. Each person within a partnership nomination is counted as an individual Sizzler.
The decision of the Edmontonians' selection committee is final. Successful candidates will be notified by e-mail in June, and will be contacted for interviews and photo sessions immediately thereafter.
The Fall edition of Edmontonians—celebrating the 16th Anniversary of Sizzling Twenty under 30—will be issued on or about September 15th, 2016.
