The deadline for 2017 Federal 100 awards is fast approaching. So please help the most exceptional women and men in federal IT get the recognition they deserve!
The Federal 100 are the most prestigious awards in federal IT and for good reason -- but it all starts with a great pool of nominees. So if you know individuals you believe should be among the 2017 Federal 100, please make sure our judges know about them, too.
Not certain what it takes to make the Federal 100? Here are five points to remember:
- Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible: career civil servants, political appointees, contractors, academics -- even members of Congress and staff.
- 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.
- This is not a lifetime achievement award. Be sure to tell our judges what the nominee accomplished in 2016.
- You are allowed to make multiple nominations. Do so early and often.
- Impact matters. Tell us what a nominee did and what that work accomplished.
The deadline for submissions is Dec. 23. Go to FCW.com/2017fed100 for details, and submit your nominations today.
