Not a particularly meaningful award. So-called “rising stars” are frequently chosen because of their particular demographic rather than the intrinsic value or innovation associated with their work.

The quality of the recent hires at LANL has been declining for some time. On top of that many of the winners in the last 10 years at LANL have left not long after getting the award and this influences DOE's decisions.
