We all know innovation takes a lot of time and hard work -- and so, evidently, does writing nominations for the best early-career innovators in government IT! So after many requests for a little more time, we're extending the nomination deadline for the 2021 Rising Stars -- and for all the other Government Innovation Awards -- until 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, July 15.
With the Rising Stars, we're looking for early-career phenoms whose leadership, innovation and all-around extra effort are having a powerful and positive impact. And we need those nominations ASAP!
Anyone in the government IT community is eligible — military and civilian, career and political, contractor, academic and association expert alike. Nominees must be less than 10 years into their government IT careers, and winners are chosen for their impact so be sure to explain what a nominee did and what all that work accomplished.
And don't forget about the other awards. We're looking for Industry Innovators and Public Sector Innovations as well! Details and nomination forms can be found at GovernmentInnovationAwards.com.
Please spread the word, and move fast -- help us celebrate all the top drivers of government innovation.
All 2021 nominations are due by July 15, so please submit yours today!
