    One $10,000 grant! That’s it?! Why bother, really. If that is the best a massive company such as Audi can provide then I think they should not bother doing anything.

      I think it could be a good cash injection for a small company regardless of who is sponsoring. Many business awards don’t provide any prize except for kudos and recognition.
