Know any rising stars? Nominate them today!

Rising Star

The deadline is fast approaching for 2013 Rising Star nominations. The best up-and-comers in the federal IT community deserve to be recognized, but all nominations must be in by midnight on Monday, July 15.

Much like the Federal 100 awards, FCW's Rising Star awards recognizes individuals who go above and beyond their official job descriptions. By focusing on those in the first 10 years of their federal IT careers, however, the judges look for nominees who not only make a real impact, but also have clear potential to grow into positions of greater responsibility in their organizations and in the community at large.

Curious to see who's made the grade in the past? Check out the profiles of last year's winners -- and then be sure to nominate your organization's rising stars while there is still time!
