The final day for Federal 100 nominations!
Just a quick reminder that today is the final day for submitting 2016 Federal 100 Award nominations. By Tuesday morning, we will be shipping the nominations to our judges so they can get started on what amounts to several hundred pages of reading!
Remember, all nominations must be made online at FCW.com/2016fed100.
And here's one last recap of what it takes to make the Federal 100:
- Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible.
- The award is for individual accomplishments in 2015.
- Federal 100 winners go above and beyond -- whatever their level or rank. A fancy job title is not required, and just doing one's job well is not enough.
- Impact matters. The judges need to know not only what a nominee did, but also what all that work accomplished.
If you know individuals whose talents, leadership and dedication are making federal IT better, please be sure they have the opportunity to receive the recognition they deserve. Nominate them today!
