SHARE Microsoft, USO sponsor Above, Beyond Awards

Microsoft Corp. and the United Service Organizations (USO) are sponsoring the 2007 Microsoft Above and Beyond Awards. The awards will recognize the contributions of the military community of friends, family and other individuals who supported U.S. troops and/or their families in 2007.

Microsoft and the USO are calling for nominations of individuals who go above and beyond to brighten the lives of U.S. service men and women, and their families.

Nominations can be in the following five categories: outstanding effort in supporting troops; dedication to providing superior medical attention to the wounded and injured; outstanding impact and success in generating promotional support of the USO; making a difference to improve the quality of life of service members; and youth leaders who champion and represent outstanding support of troops.

A panel of judges will narrow the nominations to finalists in each category, from which the winners will be chosen through an online public vote. Those receiving awards will be flown to New York City for an award ceremony Nov. 12 and a special Microsoft-sponsored performance of the 75th celebration of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.

Nominations may be submitted until Oct. 15 at www.microsoft.com/federal/aboveandbeyondawards.
