Oakland County is looking for the next class of young adults who are “All Ways, Moving Forward” for the Oakland Together 40 Under 40 Class of 2024. The award program seeks individuals under the age of 40 who are innovators, succeeding in their professions, and providing significant and essential service to their communities.
Our 40 Under 40 classes have encompassed talent, skill, and excellence coupled with passion for public service and a commitment to significant and critical contributions to their communities. I have no doubt that the 2024 class will be no different, and I look forward to connecting with the people who are making such a difference in our county.Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter.
To be eligible, candidates must live or work in Oakland County, be 18 years of age or older, and have been born after Dec. 31, 1983. Applications close at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12.
The 40 finalists, who will be featured on the Oakland Together 40 Under 40 website, will receive invitations to the 2024 State of the County Address and pre-reception and the Oakland Together 40 under 40 Award celebration.
Members of the 40 under 40 Class of 2024 will embody the spirit of “Oakland Together” that Coulter unveiled during his first State of the County address.
“We can leverage our strengths to tackle our challenges before they become problems. We can lead and innovate. We can be fiscally responsible with the taxpayer’s money and forward-thinking. To do that, we must be Oakland Together. Together as public servants working for the public good, together with our residents and businesses, and together with our region,” said Coulter.
