2020 Awards Canceled!

Next Awards will be in 2021. Date to be announced.

Over the past 12 years, we’ve recognized some 240 of our community’s brightest professionals. Unfortunately, there will be no awards this year due to the uncertainties surrounding the size of indoor gatherings. Watch for next year’s event, which will be announced by year’s end.

20 Under 40 Awards: Inspire Community - Lead, Act, Give

Ralph Parshall, general manager of Mercedes-Benz of Eugene, first conceived of the 20 under 40 Awards in 2008. Winners show excellence in their careers, put a priority on community service and want to make their community the best it can be. If you planned to nominate someone who will turn 40 this year, don’t worry. We’ll accommodate those folks in next year’s awards. We’re energized by the accomplishments of past winners. We’re looking forward to 2021 – stay tuned!

“I find joy in seeing the impact past winners make on our community. Every year I’m inspired when I read through the nominations. It’s always a very difficult decision to pick just 20 people to recognize.”

—Ralph Parshall, General Manager
