501cTECH celebrates the power of technology to change lives.

Since 2003, the Technology Innovation Awards (TIA) have recognized D.C. area nonprofits that have shared the best ideas for how to leverage technology to more effectively fulfill their missions and impact change in our community. Offered annually, and open to all nonprofits operating in the Greater D.C. area, the goal is to provide not only sorely needed technology project funding, but also to celebrate how technology can powerfully impact lives when applied strategically to some of the area’s most pressing needs.

Like last year, the 2016 Technology Innovation Awards will be divided into three cause categories:

  1. PreK-12 and STEM Education, sponsored by CenturyLink
  2. Skills to Succeed and Workforce Development, Sponsored by Accenture
  3. Veterans and Military Families, Sponsored by BAE Systems

Nonprofits around the region are encouraged to submit their ideas for an innovative project that could advance their efforts in one of those cause areas. Past winners have presented a wide range of projects that empowered them through digital capabilities, including web-based learning portals, comprehensive salesforce customization, mobile application development, and innovative social media strategy.

A panel of judges made up primarily of technology executives from leading area companies and nonprofits will select six finalists and then three winners. The Technology Innovation Awards are announced and presented at the 501cTECH annual Celebration of Technology in November. The category winners each receive $7,500 cash and a consultation from 501cTECH and the TIA presenters.

The deadline to apply for the 2016 Technology Innovation Awards is July 1.
