The 2011 Federal 100 award winners

This year's Federal 100 awards program is a reminder that excellent work goes on, even in the toughest of times.

The most important distinguishing mark of Federal 100 winners is simple: They step up. Often the work that results in a Federal 100 award is something that is difficult, time-consuming and, in many cases, beyond the winner’s job description. But they step up to it and get the job done. It’s that simple.

After 22 years of the Federal 100 awards program, you would think we had seen it all. But this year’s program just goes to show that excellence never gets old.

Some are a complete joke - of course you pay to be involved, such a shame

Apparently being really, really incredibly good looking doesn’t get an employee an award like it use to. I’ll have to write a complaint right after I’m through staring at myself in the mirror.

Do you pay to be on this? I'm sure you do. There is no way someonf these are Top 100.

Gee, where are the Silent Heros? Those are the ones that should be in the top 100. When I see DHS, TSA, and others, I shake my heads. Can't you do any better than this? It is still "who you know" and who wants to write you up to win.
