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. 

You can nominate a deserving person at MS Top 50 nominations. Nominations are open from December 1st until December 31st. An event recognizing winners will be held in Spring 2024. More information will be provided about the event closer to its date.
