Nominations are open for the 2024 Federal 100 awards

The deadline for submissions is Dec. 31, 2023

Nominations for the 2024 Federal 100 awards are open, and we're looking to our readers to help make sure the superstars of the federal IT community get the recognition they deserve.

This will be the 35th year of the Federal 100 awards, which honor individuals who have gone far beyond the letter of their job descriptions to make a difference.

Every year, it's a privilege to be able to sift through the pool of nominations. They showcase a range of important work being done throughout the community, and there are always far more outstanding individuals than a list of 100 can accommodate. 

But it all starts with you. If you know people you believe should be among the 2024 Federal 100, please make sure our judges know about them too. Not certain what it takes to make the Federal 100? Here are five points to remember:

  • Anyone in the federal IT community is eligible: career civil servants, political appointees, contractors, academics and members of Congress.
  • The awards are for individual accomplishments in the 2023 calendar year.
  • Winners go above and beyond, whatever their level or rank. A fancy job title is not required. Just doing one’s job well is not enough.
  • Impact matters. Tell us what a nominee did and what that work accomplished.
  • You can submit multiple nominations. Please do so early and often.

The deadline for submissions is Dec. 31 at 11:59 p.m. ET, but don't delay. Get started on your nominations today.
