The nominees are under 40 years of age and broken up into 18 categories that represent different thriving industries within Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties. The honorees are chosen by Editor-in-Chief Kevin Gale based on seniority in their organization, professional accomplishments, community involvement, and educational achievements.
