Every year, PUMP teams up with Pittsburgh Magazine to honor 40 outstanding people under the age of 40 whose creativity, vision, and passion enrich our region.
Since 1998, the awards program has recognized over 700 artists, entrepreneurs, doctors, educators, nonprofit executives, public figures, business leaders, behind-the-scenes contributors, and more. 40 Under 40 Honorees are diverse, passionate and committed difference makers that are transforming our City through their professional and community contributions. In a typical year, the nomination pool exceeds 250 submissions making the 40 Under 40 Awards one of the premier recognitions in the region for young Pittsburghers. Following a rigorous review and selection process, all Honorees are chosen by a judging panel of past 40 Under 40 winners, community leaders, and program hosts and sponsors, based on professional and community achievements. All award winners are notified in late summer and then honored at the annual 40 Under 40 Awards celebration held each fall that draws over 300 attendees. In addition to being honored at the 40 Under 40 Awards event, all award winners are featured in the November issue of Pittsburgh Magazine.
