Receiving Chairman’s Award!
At Beijing Cultural Exchange Event #1, we received Chairman's Award! Even though the regional itself was cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic, FIRST judges took time to read the essays we submitted back in February and recognized Chairman's Award winners around the world.
Chairman's Award is the most prestigious award at FIRST. It honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the mission of FIRST. It was created to keep the central focus of FIRST Robotics Competition on the ultimate goal of transforming the culture in ways that will inspire greater levels of respect and honor for science and technology, as well as encouraging more of today's youth to become science and technology leaders.
We were very surprised when we found out we won Chairman's Award two years in a row even though this past season was our third season to participate in FRC. We would've never been able to act on our passion like we have without the generous support from all of you. Thank you all so much for supporting us!
