And The Winners of The 2021 Comcast Innovation Challenge Are…
We have determined the 2021 winners of the Comcast NBCUniversal Innovation Challenge!
About The Challenge
Since premiering, the Comcast NBCUniversal Innovation Challenge showcase featuring innovative businesses developed by four TAF@Saghalie students has garnered almost 200 views. At the start of the challenge, we asked students, “How do you develop an online presence through a virtual environment? Over three months, students learned and honed web development, UX/UI, branding, and marketing skills from industry experts to produce their final projects — a fully developed website on CodePen.io.
This was the fourth year of the challenge, which is a partnership between TAF and Comcast NBCUniversal. Each year, students “hack” a telecommunications issue using technology and innovative ideas then present their projects to a panel of judges. Last year was the first virtual showcase in which viewers served as the judge to decide the winners.
The Final Results
Showcase viewers had until midnight to cast their votes for their favorite team based on process, produce, and presentation. We are proud to announce the 2021 Comcast NBCUniveral Innovation Challenge winners as follows:
1st Place: Team Three – Atarashi Chansu
