Nominations open for 2019 Rising Star Awards
True innovation takes a lot — new technologies, strong leadership, talented industry partners and, of course, individual change agents.
That's why the Rising Star Awards — which honor up-and-coming IT talent — are such an integral part of the Government Innovation Awards program. (A joint effort of FCW, GCN, Washington Technology and Defense Systems, the Government Innovation Awards also recognize the companies supporting the government’s transformation and the most innovative technology initiatives across the public sector.)
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.
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.
Nominations for 2019 Rising Stars are now open, so please submit yours today!
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 help us celebrate all the top drivers of government innovation.
