Tired of finding the usual suspects — too often folks well into middle age — on the typical lists of "Ones to Watch" or "St. Louis Leaders?" We here at The Commonspace are, too. That's why we're seeking out 21 St. Louisans under the age of 21 who are contributing to the civic or cultural fabric of our town, whether as artists, interns, entrepreneurs, problem solvers, social agitators, volunteers, mentors or all-around creative thinkers. While academic achievers are welcome, scholastic accomplishments are not a primary qualification.

Nominees must be under the age of 21 as of May 1, 2002. The following information is required to nominate yourself or another person:

Email nominations to twentyone@thecommonspace.org or mail them to 3875A Connecticut St., St. Louis, MO 63116. The winners will be featured in the "Young Minds" section of TheCommonspace.org, and honored at a party in June. Our greatest hope is that your nominations will give all St. Louisans a preview of the next generation of St. Louis leaders, and reinforce our optimism about the future of our city.
