What is Mississippi Top 50?

Mississippi Top 50 is an annual list of the people who are judged to be the most influential leaders in the state.  This bipartisan selection of leaders comes from the ranks of elected and appointed officials, economic development professionals, business, media and government affairs.  The awards are sponsored by Y’all Politics and Supertalk Mississippi and awardees are nominated through an open process.

Recognizing the most influential every year helps to spotlight what is right with Mississippi and the people who can be the keys to providing leadership to what it can and should be.  Awardees will be provided the ability, next to their profile on, to upload YouTube content or a whitepaper explaining what their passion project is and why it’s important to Mississippi’s success.

Additionally, there will be two Mississippians recognized annually for “Hall of Fame” status.  These are Mississippians who have made lasting contributions to the political, business and public policy landscape.  The Hall of Fame awards are brought to you courtesy of Capitol Resources and Tower Loan Company.
