GSN’s 2016 Homeland Security Awards Program Now Accepting Entries at: The 2016 Government Security News Awards Program, featuring many new categories in Cybersecurity, Physical Security, Government Agency Innovations and Mobile Technologies will open for entries on August 24 and will close for entries on November 15. In good news for Winners and Finalists, GSN will be reinstating its annual Homeland Security Awards Dinner in Washington, DC in the first week of December, in a venue to be announced. Longtime participants in the GSN awards programs will recall that previous GSN Awards Dinners have featured top government, military leaders and respected television commentators such as 4-Star General Barry McCaffrey (Ret); Fran Townsend, Homeland Security Advisor to George W. Bush, James Kallstrom, Assistant Director of the FBI and Admiral Thad Allen (Ret), Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard who came out of retirement twice to serve his county, first in Hurricane Katrina and later in the BP Oil Spill. The cost of an entry for vendors is $300 per entry, but there is no charge for government agencies or departments. All Winners and Finalists receive Awards Emblems, and all Winners receive a handsome, gold-trimmed plaque describing their winning entries. All Winners and Finalists will also be invited to participate in the 2016 Digital Yearbook of Awards Winners.
