The Gentlemen Showcase

Recognizing Chivalry Since 2010.

The Gentlemen Showcase
is an annual national contest sponsored by the Network of enlightened Women (NeW)
to recognize and honor young gentlemen, because yes, young gentlemen do exist.

Despite what you may have read in the news lately, many young men are polite, act with integrity, and treat everyone with the respect they deserve. These men of integrity rise above the trending misconception that all men are predators. They stand by their values, fight for good in their communities, seek social justice, and advocate for positive change. We want to honor these young men—and encourage more of them.

Since 2010, The Gentlemen Showcase has been praising the good men out there. We are counting on you to tell America who they are through nominations—including an example or a short description of why your nominee is a gentleman. Once nominated, you will then have the opportunity to vote and share. Both the winning nominee and nominators will receive a prize.

Young men will compete in two categories, the College Contest (undergraduate students) or the Under 30 Contest (graduate students and young professionals). The winning gentleman of each category will be awarded a donation of $1,000 for the charity of his choice and a prize from one of our sponsors for himself. The nominator of each winning gentleman receives a gift package from Kendra Scott valued at $260*!
