Fed 100 deadline extended

Fed 100 logo

The nominations for FCW’s 2013 Federal 100 awards are coming in at a rapid clip – but so too are pleas for an extension as internal approvals and other delays risk pushing worthy nominees past the deadline. 

So in the spirit of giving (and holiday-season procrastination), we adding a few more days to the nomination window.  The new – and final! – deadline for all nominations is Dec. 31, 2012.

We at FCW firmly believe that individuals are what really drive change in the way government works, delivers services and improves the lives of its citizens, and the Federal 100 awards recognize women and men who demonstrate what a difference those efforts can produce.

But, this is your last chance to single out this year’s exceptional members of the federal IT community for much-deserved recognition. The nominations in hand already reflect a remarkable array of talent in both agencies and industry, but please help ensure that all the worthy candidates and considered.  Submit your nominations now at http://fcw.com/fed100.
