The purpose of this prestigious award is to identify and acknowledge young leadersin the community. The 40 honorees, who are under the age of 40, were nominated by their peers and then judged on their outstanding career achievements and community service impact. A panel of judges evaluated each nomination based on a 30-point scale, with a maximum of 10 points allocated in each of the following categories - reason for nomination, career achievements, community involvement, and their vision for the future of Lafourche.

More information about the Best of Lafourche: 40 Under 40 honorees will be published and distributed in the fall. Honorees will also be recognized at an Awards Ceremony and banquet in November, which the community is invited to attend. More details will be released at a later date.
