Feds have more time for Federal 100 nominations
Federal employees now have 11 extra days to finish up and submit Fed 100 nominations, an award ceremony for exceptional IT workers.
The new deadline (which was originally set for Christmas Eve) is 5 p.m. ET on Friday, Jan. 4. And this one is non-negotiable -- by the morning Saturday, Jan. 5, we will be shipping the nominations to our judges so they can get started on what always amounts to several hundred pages of reading.
So if you have a nomination that's waiting on that one last bit of information -- or if you wanted to nominate someone but feared there wasn't enough time -- you now have nearly two extra weeks. Get moving!
Remember, all nominations must be made online -- you can find all the details at FCW.com/2019fed100.
And here's one last recap of what it takes to make the Federal 100:
- Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible.
- The award is for individual accomplishments in 2018.
- 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.
- 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 -- and then enjoy the rest of the holiday season.
