With state-of-the-art laser engraving and assembled right here in United States, this is a trophy that’s something you will display and keep forever.
How the IT World Awards winners will be determined
These are industry and peer awards. Judges are executives and professionals representing a broad spectrum of industry voices and from around the world. All judges are volunteers who provide their expert inputs and valuable time in scoring each nomination. Judges’ average scores will determine the Golden Bridge Awards winners. In each category the nomination with the highest cumulative score will win the Gold status followed by Silver and Bronze. You or someone who you know may apply to volunteer as a judge.

Advice on preparing content that gets noticed by the Judges
– Keep it simple
– Focus more on keeping the content positive and highlight the most recent and important achievements first
– Do not use this opportunity to belittle or criticize the competition. Focus on your organization only.
– It’s ok to mention any uniqueness or being the “first” in something. It’s ok to highlight any challenges faced and action taken to overcome them.
