Despite what you may have read in the news lately, many young men stand by their values, fight for good in their communities, and advocate for positive change. These men are different and stand apart from the crowd because they put others before themselves, giving their time and resources to serving others. Previous Gentlemen of the Year have been nominated for treating others with kindness and respect from giving up a seat on a bus to standing up for conservative women and intellectual diversity on campus. We want to continue recognizing these young men—and encourage more of them.
That’s why The Gentlemen Showcase exists. Since 2010, this annual contest, sponsored by the Network of enlightened Women (NeW), has been a way to recognize and honor young gentlemen across the country. The Showcase has been featured by ABC News, CBS DC, New York Post, Red Alert Politics, The Atlantic, The College Fix, The Washington Examiner, and Townhall.
The 2021 Gentlemen Showcase is NOW CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who nominated gentlemen that exemplify the qualities of kindness, service, generosity, and chivalry to name a few.
The first place “Gentleman of the Year” and his nominator will each win a $500 scholarship for their studies. Additionally, one gentleman will be selected as the runner up or “Honorable Mention” and he and his nominator will each win a $250 scholarship for their studies. On top of these great prizes, there will be additional prizes donated by generous companies announced throughout our Showcase. If the winner is not an undergraduate or graduate student, the equivalent of their scholarship prize will be donated to the charity of their choice. If a NeW chapter nominates one of the winners, their scholarship prize will be changed to a chapter grant. The winners will be chosen by a selection committee, as described in the Official Rules.
To find out the 2021 Gentlemen Showcase winners when they are announced, be sure you are following us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. To be one of the first to find out about the 2022 Gentlemen Showcase, sign up for our NeWsletter.
