Technology Innovation Showcase

For the 11th consecutive year, GTA is sponsoring the Technology Innovation Showcase, which helps state and local agencies in Georgia learn about IT projects in other agencies that are changing the way government does business. The showcase recognizes innovative uses of technology that enable agencies to better meet constituent expectations for services and information, improve operating efficiency, and conserve tax dollars.

Nominations are due on March 25, 2022.

Why participate?

Get the kudos your agency deserves

IT teams work hard and receiving recognition from colleagues of a "job well done" is meaningful.

Elevate the field of government IT

Promote awareness of transformative, results-oriented projects and shatter the stereotype of overbudget and behind schedule.

Showcase success to leadership

Nominations articulate what you did and why it mattered; leverage writeups with key stakeholders within your agency.

Share your ideas beyond your agency

Projects selected for the 2022 showcase will be honored at the Georgia Digital Government Summit in the fall. Showcase honorees will also be highlighted in Georgia's Annual State IT Report, and they will be considered for submission to the National Association of State CIOs (NASCIO) State IT Recognition Awards.

Our online submission form is open through March 25, 2022.
