*Due to the overwhelming response, 24 hours is extending the nomination deadline for Top 24 Under 24 to Tuesday Oct. 15!
24 hours is on the prowl for Metro Vancouver's best and brightest young people for our annual feature — Top 24 Under 24. We’re profiling aspiring entrepreneurs, amazing athletes, clever innovators or anyone else making big strides in the world.
We’re looking to showcase youth from a wide range of backgrounds, schools and programs from across the region.
Last year we featured some truly remarkable young people, including an 18-year-old with plans to open a music school in rural Asia for disadvantaged youths, a science student who was also moonlighting as a taekwondo instructor, and a partially paralyzed young woman who defied the prognosis of doctors by walking again.
We want inspiring candidates who have set some serious goals or accomplished impressive things.
If you or someone you know fits the bill, go to vancouver24hrs.ca/top24 for more information on Top 24 Under 24 and the chance to be profiled in the newspaper!
What we're looking for are young individuals (perhaps within their final year of study, close to graduation) who excel — whether that's in academics, sports, specialty programs, on/off-campus work or other areas.
The only major qualifications we're looking for are:
*Nominees are 24 years old or younger. (They must be turning 25 no sooner than Oct. 6, 2013.)
*There is something that clearly sets the nominee apart from their peers.
