The Wisconsin Alumni Association (WAA) is calling for nominations for the 2009 Forward under 40 awards. Forward under 40 is a new, annual awards program of the WAA showcasing dynamic UW-Madison graduates under the age of 40. Award winners demonstrate remarkable impact through their professional achievements, service to the community or to UW-Madison, and reflect a great Badger spirit in terms of energy, initiative, creativity and drive.

WAA created the Forward under 40 award to honor and recognize outstanding UW graduates under age 40 who are living the Wisconsin Idea. The online nomination form will be open from June 2, 2008 to July 11, 2008. You may also visit for additional information and read more about the outstanding 2008 recipients.
