THE 21ST CENTURY ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

In April of 2008, distinguished judges on ten panels one for each of 10 industry categories completed their review of the case studies submitted by the Computerworld Honors Program's Laureates for the Class of 2008. Based on this review, they named 50 Finalists as guests of honor at ceremonies at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC, on June 2, 2008. At these ceremonies, the Computerworld Honors Program announced 10 organizations as recipients of the Program's 21st Century Achievement Awards.
