2006 21st Century Achievement Awards

In April of 2006, thirty three CIO-level distinguished judges on ten panels—one panel 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 2006. Based on this review, they named these 50 Finalists as guests of honor at ceremonies at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC, on June 5, 2006.

Also at these ceremonies, the Computerworld Honors Program announced Finalists who were recipients of the program's top honor to organizations: The Computerworld Honors Program's 21st Century Achievement Award.
