At the Gala Evening, additional honors are given to 55 21st Century Achievement Award finalists — five Laureates from each of the eleven categories — each with a Case Study selected by Program Judges to represent outstanding innovation within the information technology field. That field is narrowed further with the presentation of the 21st Century Achievement Awards. These awards are given to only one Finalist in each category, singled out for special recognition by the Program Judges to be the very best among their peers.

"The number and quality of nominations this year were very inspiring and demonstrate how valuable IT is to community change," said John Amato, Publisher, Computerworld. "Computerworld is very proud to name the 2011 class of Laureates and showcase their initiatives benefiting society through innovative uses of IT."
