Editor's Note

Time is running out for Federal 100 nominations!

Fed 100 - Submit your Nomination

Time is running out to submit nominations for the 2020 Federal 100 Awards.

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 7.  All nominations must be made online; additional details about submissions and the selection criteria are available at FCW.com/2020fed100.

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 2019.
  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!
