I’m a finalist

So here I was at work yesterday, minding my own business when an email notification pops up on my screen. Normally getting an email has a direct correlation to being handed more work to do, so I sigh and click over to my inbox. I see the new email and it’s from the ACS – it’s about the award I applied for (which funnily enough I was also nominated for by someone else – I didn’t know about that until after I applied). Anyway I open up the email and see:

The ACS cordially invites you, as a Young ICT Professional of the Year finalist, to attend the Fellows Lunch on Friday 19 November when the winner of the 2010 Young ICT Professional of the Year will be announced and presented with the Award.
The venue is the Hilton Hotel (Victoria Room), Level 6, 190 Elizabeth Street, Brisbane and the time is 12 noon for 12.30pm start.
We will have as our guest speaker the ACS National President, Mr Anthony Wong.
A two course lunch with drinks will be served.
We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will be able to attend.

Well this makes me very happy 😀 I doubt I’ll win the award, but even making it to the finals for it is a pretty awesome achievement for someone who has only been in the industry for like 8 months.

Signing Off (in a good mood!) – MCL

    Is there a list of previous winners available?

      A bit of googling revealed:

      Cindy Tong (Winner)
      John Henderson (finalist)
      Raghwendra Jee (finalist)

      I couldn’t find anything listing the 2009 winners (though I found a page regarding nominating someone)
