Top 4 Under 40
People of all ages help a community thrive, including a long-term ample supply of young leaders moving into key leadership positions. We have a lot of great young professionals in Cherokee County that are doing a lot of really great things, both in the community and professionally. With that in mind, the Chronicle Times has created an award program to honor the top 4 community achievers under the age of 40. The project is called The Chronicle Times Top 4 Under 40.
The Chronicle Times announced this week that nominees for this award in 2020 are currently being sought and Top 4 Under 40 Nomination Forms are now available.
Nominations must be submitted by 5 PM Friday, January 17, 2020. The nominees go through the selection process anonymously and are scored by a five person committee. The top four nominees will be honored in two ways – In February, the Chronicle Times will publish a special section in the newspaper that will include profiles of the honorees. Prior to that, they will be presented a plaque at the annual Cherokee Area Economic Development Banquet held at the Little Sioux Events Center in Cherokee on February 6.
Not only is this a recognition for the individual that is receiving the award, bu t it also is a recognition for their place of business. The community learns that they have a high performing individual as a part of the staff or maybe it is the owner of that business. It gives that business some additional visibility and public acknowledgement.

Cherokee is your place to be… for a day, a weekend or a lifetime.
Cherokee sits in the beautiful Little Sioux River Valley in Northwest Iowa. We are located at the junction of U.S. Hwy 59 and State Hwy. 3, about 60 miles northeast of Sioux City, IA. The Little Sioux River winds through town and provides an excellent recreational source for fishing and canoeing as well as a backdrop to a beautiful park system.
Our Historic Downtown was built in the 1870’s and features many unique shopping opportunities. Cherokee’s Main Street was designated as a Cultural District by the State of Iowa in 2004. Live music and entertainment can be heard throughout the year, but especially during the annual Jazz & Blues Festival.
Cherokee is home to the Cherokee PRCA Rodeo, Sanford Museum and Planetarium, Cherokee County Fair, Depot Renovation and Cherokee Symphony.
The Cherokee Chamber of Commerce strives to make Cherokee a positive place to live, visit and do business. Whether you are looking for something entertaining to do this weekend, or a new community to call home, a good place to shop or a place to open a new business, the Cherokee Chamber can help.
