A magazine published by the Empire-Tribune will highlight 40 local individuals under the age of 40 who are making big contributions to Erath County.

The third annual publication of 40 under 40 will be published in March 2019, and now the E-T is asking readers to make their nominations.

We want to feature people from all walks of life - from a special student who is mindful of the environment to a nurse, teacher, police officer, bus driver, postman or waitress who goes above and beyond the call of duty.

Perhaps you know a young father who dedicates his time to coaching youth sports or a mother who works behind the scenes as a school volunteer.

There are so many wonderful, interesting people out there that we have never met. Please introduce them to us so we can consider them for this very special publication.

Nominations can be emailed to Sara Vanden Berge at svandenberge@empiretribune.com and must be received by Tuesday, Jan. 2.
