FCW Insider: What your ethics officer needs to know about the Fed 100

In recent weeks, I've received numerous calls and e-mails from readers about one topic: What do Federal 100 award winners actually receive and how much is it worth? So I thought I would post my answers here for everyone who has not had a chance to ask.

What do winners receive? In short, the honor of being selected. That's the big prize, anyway. FCW will highlight the winners in the magazine and online on March 23 and salute them in person at the Federal 100 Awards Gala on March 25. The Fed 100 issue is definitely worth clipping and saving and the gala is not to be missed.

The winners also receive a commemorative glass trophy. Rest assured, winning a Federal 100 award will not get anyone in trouble with the ethics officer. The cost of the glass trophy does not cross the any threshold and the honor itself is simply priceless.
