The "50 Over 50" list celebrates and recognizes Minnesotans over the age of 50 who have made significant contributions and achievements in their communities. 

 

People from across Minnesota visited 50Over50MN.org to nominate leaders in their community in one of five categories: arts & culture, nonprofit, business, community building, and disruption. A transparent cohort of distinguished peers then took on the near impossible task of narrowing down the list to fifty of the most inspiring and accomplished leaders from across the state.
