The annual awards program honors visionary applications of information technology, promoting positive social, economic, and educational change.
"Technology continues to play a pivotal role in transforming how business and society functions.

On June 3, 2013, the USCG will be recognized for its innovative use of Good's mobile technology at the Computerworld Honors Program Awards Ceremony at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. Additionally, as part of the Laureate nomination, the USCG has been named a finalist for Computerworld's 21st Century Achievement Award, which will also be announced during the Honors Program Gala and Awards Dinner.
