Each year NASCIO honors outstanding IT projects among the states through the NASCIO State IT Recognition Awards. The Awards showcase innovation and excellence in the use of information technology in state government, such as transformational projects and initiatives that address critical business problems, improve business processes and increase citizen engagement in state government.
In 2017, NASCIO's 29th consecutive year of the awards program, volunteer judges selected 11 recipients across 11 categories.
