Chairmans Award

Our Chairman’s Awards

In the past years FIRST Team 340 Greater Rochester Robotics has been awarded the Chairman’s Award eight times. Our team works very hard to win this award every year with our surplus of demos and community outreach. Below you will find our past Chairman’s Essays.

 What is the Chairman’s Award?

The Chairman’s Award is the most prestigious award in the FIRST community. It focuses on the numerous aspects of FIRST including Community Outreach, Gracious Professionalism, FLL Involvement, Spreading FIRST, and how your team bonds. In order to win this award you must present at your Regional Competition. In order to present you must write an essay, team history, executive summary, make a video, and create a presentation that three team members will present in front of three judges. Many times teams do skits or other creative presentations.

If you win your team will be invited to Championship to compete for the Chairman’s Award and Robot Champion. Your regional process will begin again and you will present in front of three more judges. These judges are looking for the best team from across the world.

If you win at Championship you will be invited to Championship every year as a Hall of Fame Team. This means you will be unable to submit again.
