Last chance to submit Fed 100 nominations!
- By Troy K. Schneider
- Jan 24, 2019
We've held open the nomination process as long as we could, but the partial government shutdown has stretched far longer than we thought possible. Judging for the 2019 Federal 100 Awards takes place this weekend, so all submissions must be in by 6 p.m. ET on Friday, Jan. 25.
If you have a nomination that's awaiting final sign-off from a furloughed supporting nominator, please consider submitting it as-is with a note about that challenge. The online nomination form is here, and you can find detailed guidelines at FCW.com/2019fed100.
The current shutdown is an unwelcome reminder of the many obstacles that members of the federal IT community must sometimes overcome. Let's make sure it doesn't keep the best of those individuals from getting the recognition they deserve.
