Government Innovation Awards

Last chance to nominate a Rising Star

Government Innovation Awards - https://governmentinnovationawards.com

The deadline for 2018 Rising Star nominations is fast approaching. All submissions must be received by midnight ET on Wednesday, July 18, so please be sure to get yours in before the calendar flips to July 19.

The Rising Star Awards, of course, honor outstanding individuals who are in the first 10 years of their government IT careers. We’re looking for early-career phenoms whose leadership, innovation and all-around extra effort are having a powerful and positive impact. But don’t forget about the other awards. We’re accepting nominations for Industry Innovators and Public Sector Innovations as well! Details and nomination forms can be found at GovernmentInnovationAwards.com.

So please help us celebrate all the top drivers of government innovation -- and move fast, as we're down to the final hours.
