The South Shore Stars announced the winners of its second annual 40 Under 40 Awards on Monday.
Winners are leaders younger than 40 who demonstrate excellence in their business and community involvement, said Gwen Tarbox, director of program resource development at South Shore Stars.
"It's part of promoting the quality of life in this region," she said. "South Shore is a vibrant place to live."
Requirements for nominees included that winners must be younger than 40 on Saturday and must live or work on the South Shore.
After a two-month nomination period, five judges determined the winners based on professional accomplishments, community involvement and demonstrated or potential leadership.
The Stars organization will recognize the winners Sept. 16 at the Launch at Hingham Shipyard. Tickets can be purchased at 40under40stars.org.
The South Shore Stars is a 41-year-old organization in Weymouth that runs free programs for early education and youth development, including child care, tutoring and a summer camp in Westwood.
