Calling for Nominations: 30 Under 30 San Diego County Leaders

With constant updates on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the continued worries about the economy, it’s hard to find feel-good news.

But that’s why Patch prides itself in its work. Though it’s important to cover budget cuts, the recession’s effects on local businesses and how the ongoing war affects our soldiers, Patch also shines a bright light on good things in our communities, too.

At Patch, you can read the story about an 8-year-old in La Jolla who won three national karate championships. Also at Patch, you read about a 22-year-old former Powegian reaching for the stars with his online venture. Of course, Patch also featured beautiful young women in the pageants across San Diego County.

But these are just a few of the many young people in San Diego County making a difference.

Help Patch recognize 30 young people by nominating those you know in our first ever “Patch’s San Diego County 30 Under 30” project. The 30 people selected through nominations will be featured in the entire month of October on Patch’s 13 local sites.

Nominations should include 300 words as to why the person should be featured and contact information for the person. Additional information, such as resumes and portraits, are useful.

Nominations will be accepted by Hoa.Quach@Patch.com until Sept. 29.
