Nominations for the 2011 Federal 100 awards program due Dec 17

Federal Computer Week is now accepting nominations for the 2011 Federal 100 awards program, which recognizes individuals in government and industry who have played pivotal roles in the federal IT community in 2010.

All nominations must be submitted via the electronic form below.

The deadline is Dec. 17, 2010.

Here are guidelines for submitting nominations.

  • Focus on the individual. The Federal 100 program recognizes outstanding contributions by individuals, not groups or projects.
  • Focus on the impact. Explain how a nominee’s work made a significant difference, either in the organization or the community at large. Do not nominate people simply for doing their jobs.
  • Focus on achievements in 2010. If the work for which you are nominating the person is part of an ongoing project, explain the significance of his or her accomplishments in calendar year 2010 and why they are deserving of recognition in this year’s awards program. Nominations without this information may be rejected.
  • Look for the unsung heroes. Keep an eye out for individuals who, without the benefit of visibility or influence, made a difference through their creativity, energy and sheer tenacity.

Anyone got ideas of people they want to nominate from GovLoop commmunity? I’d love to put in a few nominations for rockstar


Too many to name and I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out. However, I would like to see some new names and some new faces on this year’s list of winners. Lots of hard working, very deserving Feds this year, due to the emphasis on OpenGov, Social Media and Gov 2.0. Maybe we can change it to the Fed 500. 🙂
