The CCTV staff and member Laura Montgomery accept the "Bridging the Digital Divide" award from the
MIT Office of Government and Community Relations and the City of Cambridge on Cambridge First Day.

Awards were presented to six organizations on Tuesday, June 13, and also included the Cambridge Housing Authority's Community Computer Centers; Community Learning Center: Project LIFT; Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House's Computer Tech Center; East End House's Technology Center; and MIT CommuniTech.

Each organization received a framed Cambridge First Day Award, $1,000 to help continue their work, as well as a bound City Council resolution commemorating their contributions.

Established in 1993, Cambridge First Day provides an opportunity for MIT to express its appreciation to the Cambridge community for the vital partnerships that exist among MIT and local businesses, public officials and residents of Cambridge. The event was streamed live on the MIT Homepage and on CCTV's Website, and is now available for viewing.
