Vienna, VA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
FCW is pleased to announce the 2013 Rising Stars – 15 individuals in the first 10 years of their federal IT careers who have gone far above and beyond their official job descriptions.
"Again and again in the stories FCW covers, it's clear that people, not technology, are the most important factor,” said Troy K. Schneider, FCW Editor-in-Chief. “This year's class of Rising Stars has shown just how much good can be done despite the funding freezes and other challenges."
The awards are an opportunity for agencies and contractors alike to give their up-and-comers a turn in the spotlight, both as a reward to those top performers and as an example to others.
