We truly hope you enjoyed this beautiful and special evening.
Laureates' achievements will be recognized publicly at the Computerworld Honors Laureate Ceremony and Awards Gala being held at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington D.C. on June 4th, 2012. During this black tie ceremony, honorees are presented with a medallion inscribed with the Program's mission, "A Search for New Heroes." Additional recognition is given to five Laureates in each category who, selected by Program Judges to represent outstanding innovation, become Finalists for the 21st Century Achievement Award. One Finalist in each category is then named a 21st Century Achievement award winner, receiving special recognition by the Program Judges to be the very best among their peers.
The Computerworld Honors Laureate Ceremony and Awards Gala is moderated by Computerworld’s Executive Editor of Events, Julia King, and includes a cocktail reception and an elegant dinner.
