A panel of judges first and foremost looks at an individual's professional success. They are also interested in knowing about their education, community service, as well as participation in industry and business associations and other accolades and awards. They look for a cross-section of impressive people from a wide range of industries who are ahead of their time for their age.
This means they've progressed up the ranks of their company or industry or have built their own company and demonstrated professional success and responsibility at a relatively young age.
