4 Under 40 award honors members of the Martin County Community for their commitment and contributions both professionally and personally.  The deadline for nominations for 2021 has passed.  Nominations for 2022 will open shortly after the 2021 event. 

Community members are invited to submit nominations for the “4 Under 40” recognition.  After the nomination deadline closes, a selection committee of community leaders reviews every submission and selects four individuals who best represent that year’s class

To be nominated, individuals must live or work in Martin County and be between the ages of 18 and 40.  

Who does the program benefit?

Each year thousands of youth in our area are benefiting from the funds raised through various events and now including 4 Under 40. It provides important revenue to maintain the programs in Martin County which are developing tomorrow’s leaders through activities that bring fun, excitement, and time with friends while really learning self-reliance, teamwork, self-esteem and determination. Raised funds give over 2,000 youth in a fifteen-county area the opportunity to participate in programs like Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, National Youth Leadership Training, Venturing, Exploring, and ScoutReach. Not only does this award raise funds for important program, but it also recognizes truly remarkable people serving our community.
