One of the benefits of being a manager is the ability to reward employees for a job well done.  However, you may not always have the budgets to do exactly what you wanted.  

Here at Microsoft we recognize that there are IT Professionals out there that are doing truly great things, and we think that they should be recognized.

We have recently launched our 2006 TechNet Canada Innovation Award to recognize those individuals.

The TechNet Canada Innovation Award 2006 is awarded to a Canadian IT Professional who is a bright star in the IT community. The Innovation Award 2006 is given in recognition of Canadian IT professionals who make a positive impact using Microsoft-based technology. Nominate today

If you have someone on your team that you think needs some recognition, please go ahead and nominate them.
