Tournament Results

Judged Awards

Motivate Award
Every team demonstrated great spirit, but this team was regal, flag waving and were louder than the DJ!  The winner of the motivate award is Team 4498 - Robo Warriors, Lewistown, PA.

Connect Award
The finalists in their outreach in the community were impressive in their promotion of Science, Engineering, Math, Technology and FIRST...Using Radio, TV, the Internet and meeting in places like bowling alleys and the malls, these teams went above and beyond to CONNECT. But the winner, although small in name, was large in outreach.  The winner of the connect award is Team 4347 - Nano Gurus, Morris Plains, NY.

PTC Design Award
Aesthetics and functional elements distinguish this design. Simple, creative yet functional is the key. The finalists nudged the bowling ball, gripped the competition and conveyed their design in new ways. But the Winner was really "Smokin" (in a good way).  The winner of the PTC design award is Team 4433 - Smokin' Motors, Robesonia, PA.

Rockwell Collins Innovate Award
The finalists swept the competition, elevated us to new heights and reached out to grab their points! The winner however regally spun us around with their software and ideas.  The winner of the Rockwell Collins innovate award is Team 4977 - Lan Lords, Millersville, PA.

Think Award
The award is given to the team that best communicated their journey! After all, what good is thinking it, if you cannot communicate it! The finalists were real experts and raised some bushy eyebrows - so it was hard to Imagine how to choose a winner...  The winner of the Think Award is Team 4999 - Imagine It, Palmyra, PA.

Judges Award
Not just sports has their superstars! This team is always ready to cheer... They demonstrated their robot in libraries, started FLL and FTC teams in schools and got invited to the Big House... the White House! For Public Relations and Promoting FIRST, we award it to Team 3489 - Minds in Gear, Coatesville, PA.

Inspire Award
The two other finalists were (3) 4498 - Robo Warriers and (2) 3489 - Minds in Gear. Every team here inspired the Judges! You got up early, drove through a snow storm, and stuck through it all. But one team, for their size, they really reached for the stars and inspired us for performance beyond their "Ears".  The winner of the inspire award is Team 4856 - Minnie Mash, West Vincent Township, PA.
