Y'all Politics & Supertalk Mississippi (WFMN) teamed up create the Top 50 Award. No longer will the beautiful people just tell each other they are beautiful, now you get to nominate them as well. ;-) Y'all Politics announced the contest today:
The Mississippi Top 50 Award is being created to recognize those that help, by virtue of their position and talent, move the conversation in Mississippi forward. Mississippi is graced with tremendous talent in government, the political sphere, business, media and culture.
This is an annual list of the people judged to be the most influential leaders in the state. This bipartisan selection of leaders comes from the ranks of local, state and federal elected and appointed officials; political leaders; government affairs professionals; public policy advocates; economic development professionals; business leaders; media professionals and other leaders. Nominations are open through September 2.
The categories are:
• Elected/Appointed Government Officials
• Lobbying/Government Relations
• Business, Culture and Media
The awards are sponsored by Y’all Politics, Mississippi’s leading political website and SuperTalk Mississippi, Mississippi’s leading statewide radio network. Awardees are nominated through an open process. There is no cost to nominate, be nominated or to receive an award. However, one must be nominated to be considered. Nominees will be notified of their nomination immediately, and awardees will be notified of their selection in late 2016. Awardees will be announced via the MSTop50.com website starting in early October....
Hmmm.... who should we nominate? So many choices, so few spots. I may create my own list today.
