Grenada 40 nomination criteria: FAQs
What is the age requirement for Grenada 40 candidates?
To be considered for the Grenada 40: Class of 2017, the names you suggest must meet the nomination criteria of by being above the age of 16 and below the age of 40 on 31 December 2017.
Can I nominate someone who has already featured on Grenada 40?
No. Please do scroll through our list of previous interviewees before nominating as we’d hate for you to waste your time. We think there’s enough talent out there for you to be able to send us fresh, new names to profile. However, those who’ve previously been profiled in the 40 under 40 list are actively encouraged to stay part of the Grenada 40 family and are likely to crop up on the Grenada 40 blog.
What criteria do you use when selecting candidates to be profiled?
Our editors look for nominees who have achievements in areas of their innovation and/ social impact. We’re not just about people who’ve attended prestigious universities, made lots of money or were born with a silver spoon in their mouths. We’re inspired by people who are carving out their own path, making a positive difference and inspiring others along the way.
Can I nominate more than one person?
Yes. You can nominate as many people as you’d like. And you can nominate colleagues, friends, family members or someone you know through their work in the community.
How do I make a nomination stand out from the pack?
By giving us as much information as possible! We can’t stress how challenging it is when you just send us a name. Let us know what’s special about them, why you think they should be profiled and (ideally) contact detail if possible.
Will the nominees be told who nominated them?
No. We’ll keep that information confidential.
I’m not sure if the person I want to nominate is Grenadian. Is that ok?
If they’re a strong candidate we can contact them directly to check but if the answer is negative we won’t be able to feature them on the site.
The definition ‘Grenadian’ is flexibly applied. For us, it refers to Grenadian citizens and residents as well as those of Grenadian parentage who are among the diaspora. Such a broad definition does have its faults, but we have to start somewhere.
