Mississippi Top 50 is an annual recognition of the people judged to be the most influential leaders in the state. The awards are given to government, business, media, culture and community leaders who are making a difference across Mississippi.
In addition to the Top 50, special recognition is given annually to two “Hall of Fame” recipients who have made lasting contributions to Mississippi and its people. This year, recognition will also be given, for the first time, to ten emerging leaders under 40 who will help pave a brighter future.
Nominations are received through an open process and are evaluated by the Mississippi Top 50 nominating committee.
