Vienna, VA (PRWEB) May 09, 2014
FCW and 1105 Public Sector Media Group are pleased to announce that the call for nominations for the 2014 Rising Star Awards is now open.
FCW’s Rising Star awards program recognizes individuals in the first 10 years of their federal IT careers who have gone above and beyond their official job descriptions. 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.
Rising Star judges look for nominees who not only make a real impact, but also have clear potential to grow into more responsibility in their organizations and in the community at large. The deadline for 2014’s submissions is Tuesday, July 15.
"We've been hearing for years that a tsunami of retirements is coming in the federal government,” said Troy K. Schneider, Editor-in-Chief of FCW, "and a rash of departures of the last few months makes clear that this is really happening among IT leaders. But there are great talents coming up through the ranks to replace them, and the Rising Star awards are a great way to show the community what young leadership looks like.”
