The Hive 25 Under 25 list is a user-submitted contest that will occur annually on Boston.com's The Hive. The judging process will begin on September 24th, following the close of submissions on September 23, 2013. All entries will be screened by the Boston.com team for appropriateness of content and copyright infringement as part of the preliminary judging process. Entries will be reviewed by our panel of judges for determination of the final list of 25. This list will be selected based on the judging criteria below. Winners will be notified on September 30, 2013, and The Hive 25 Under 25 will be announced to the public via The Boston Globe and Boston.com on October 1st, 2013.

Potential: Does this individual show promise to continue breaking new ground in their field?
Impact: Will this individual have a large impact not just in their area, but on the world?
Leadership: Has this individual demonstrated that they can not only just achieve, but bring out the best in those around them?
Innovation: Will this person's work inspire those around them to live, work, play, and think about our city?
