Editor's Note

Deadline extended for Federal 100 nominations!

Fed 100 - Submit your Nomination

It's FCW's gift to procrastinators: You have 10 extra days to finish up and submit your Fed 100 nominations.

The new deadline is Noon ET on Wednesday, Jan. 3. And this one is non-negotiable -- by Wednesday evening, we will be shipping the nominations to our judges so they can get started on what always amounts to several hundred pages of reading.

So if you have a nomination that's waiting on that one last bit of information -- or if you wanted to nominate someone but feared there wasn't enough time -- you now have two extra weeks. Get moving!

Remember, all nominations must be made online -- you can find all the details at FCW.com/2018fed100.

And here's one last recap of what it takes to make the Federal 100:

  1. Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible.
  2. The award is for individual accomplishments in 2017.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 -- and then enjoy the rest of the holiday season.
