Nominations are submitted online from January 1 through February 9, 2018. Finalists are announced the week of March 20, 2018 and the category winners are announced at the Next Generation of Government Training Summit on August 9-10, 2018 in Washington, DC.
Please read more about the award categories and their specific attributes. The selection committee will determine and assign categories based on the information submitted via the nomination form.
Nominations can be submitted for individuals and teams of four or less people. We understand that it takes a village to make change happen, however, we limit the award recognition to four or less people who represent the larger team and their achievements.
Nominators can be anyone—govie, non-govie, colleague, friend, family, supervisor or neighbor. However, we do not accept self-nominations.
While nominators are not required to be government employees, nominees must be a current government employee and can work at any level of government.
When submitting the nomination form, please provide accomplishments that have occurred within the last three years. We’d like to ensure the finalists are being recognized for recent achievements taking place in government.
