2016 FCW Rising Star Awards Call for Nominations Now Open

Vienna, VA, May 20, 2016 FCW, an 1105 Media publication, is pleased to announce that the call for nominations for the 2016 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 2016's submissions is Friday, July 1.

"The senior leaders in IT are certainly important, but it's often the rank-and-file talent that really makes an agency run," FCW Editor-in-Chief Troy K. Schneider said. "The Rising Star awards are about recognizing and celebrating those individuals — the folks who are doing great work today, and look poised to be the leaders of tomorrow."

The winners will be recognized at the GCN dig IT Awards celebration on October 13, 2016 and featured in the November/December issue of FCW. For more information on the Rising Star awards and to nominate an individual, visit
