Innovation in Control award discussion

I'm an ambitious, yet novice lead programmer for an ambitious and dedicated rookie team.

As a goal for our programming team, we want to win the Innovation in Control award next year at an event. Yet from my impressions of teams I've seen win this award, the award isn't really a programming award. The official FIRST description is:

"Celebrates an innovative control system or application of control components electrical, mechanical or software to provide unique machine functions."

This award definition seems a lot broader than control - it seems that cool mechanical features can (and do) win the only technical award programmers can also win. Do you think FRC needs an award tailored to programmers? Also, what types of innovation, programming wise, have won innovation in control awards?
