                1.  The 2014 Media & Technology Innovation Award, sponsored by Comcast NBCUniversal, is awarded to FRC or FTC teams that look beyond just building a team website, taking into account the numerous ways people search for and consume content and build a digital experience to both help their team in its fundraising efforts, but also share the FIRST experience with anyone who visits their website.
