 Judged Awards

Design Award

The Design Award recognizes design elements of the Robot that are both functional and aesthetic. The Design Award is presented to Teams that incorporate industrial design elements into their solution. These design elements could simplify the Robot's appearance by giving it a clean look, be decorative in nature, or otherwise express the creativity of the Team. The Robot should be durable, efficiently designed, and effectively address the game challenge.
Here is what the judges had to say:

This team has a robot design that is stable, with a thorough engineering portfolio. The community team used odometry, real life inspiration, and CAD design to give them the edge as their robot evolved through the season. These KNIGHTS have developed their robot with VALOR to compete in the Ultimate Goal challenge.

Winner: Team 16606 Tech-Knight Robotics

2nd Place: Team 7314 Sab-BOT-age

Motivate Award

This Team embraces the culture of FIRST and clearly shows what it means to be a team. This judged award celebrates the Team that represents the essence of the FIRST Tech Challenge competition through Gracious Professionalism and general enthusiasm for the overall philosophy of FIRST and what it means to be a FIRST Tech Challenge Team. This is a Team who makes a collective effort to make FIRST known throughout their school and community, and sparks others to embrace the culture of FIRST.
Here is what the judges had to say:

This team set their own Ultimate Goal of getting more organized. They used an Agile Scrum framework to track not only their technical progress, but also grow their outreach and team member training. These Gracious Professionals PROWLED their way to success this season.

Control Award sponsored by Arm, Inc.

The Control Award celebrates a Team that uses sensors and software to increase the Robot's functionality in the field. This award is given to the Team that demonstrates innovative thinking to solve game challenges such as autonomous operation, improving mechanical systems with intelligent control, or using sensors to achieve better results. The control component should work consistently in the field.
Here is what the judges had to say:

The judges were very impressed with the extremely detailed video this team produced. Their custom TRAPAZOIDAL based speed control algorithm moved the robot consistently through their pre-programmed routes. This teams robot was definitely NOT a LEMON.

Winner: Team 16468 Green Lemons

2nd Place: Team 14133 Lansdale Catholic Cyber Crusaders

The Collins Aerospace Innovate Award

The Collins Aerospace Innovate Award celebrates a Team that thinks outside the box and has the ingenuity, creativity and inventiveness to make their designs come to life. This judged award is given to the Team that has the most innovative and creative Robot design solution to any specific components in the FIRST Tech Challenge game. Elements of this award include elegant design, robustness, and "out of the box" thinking related to design. This award may address the design of the whole Robot or of a sub-assembly attached to the Robot. The creative component must work consistently, but a Robot does not have to work all the time during Matches to be considered for this award.
Here is what the judges had to say:

This team lifts rings to its launcher with elegant simplicity. In this design, intricate precision gears and custom spindles MARCH in unison. These young CRUSADERS chose uniquely routed wood as their tool to achieve victory.

Winner: Team 14133 Lansdale Catholic Cyber Crusaders

2nd Place: Team 18436 Basan

Connect Award

The Connect Award is given to the Team that most connects with their local science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) community. A true FIRST team is more than a sum of its parts and recognizes that engaging their local STEM community plays an essential part in their success. The recipient of this award is recognized for helping the community understand FIRST, the FIRST Tech Challenge, and the Team itself. The Team that wins the Connect Award actively seeks and recruits engineers and explores the opportunities available in the world of engineering, science and technology. This Team has a clear Team plan and has identified steps to achieve their goals.

Here is what the judges had to say:

This team did a great job of reaching out to specialists in the fields of science to learn about engineering and to get guidance on their own robot. They participated in all 5 scrimmages and all 6 meets for this season. Team members kept TWO EYES on their robot this season, making their robot the best it could BEEE.

Winner: Team 10098 2 Eyed Illuminati

2nd Place: Team 7244 OUT of the BOX

Think Award

The Think Award is given to the Team that best reflects the journey the Team took as they experienced the engineering design process during the build season. The engineering content within the portfolio is the key reference for Judges to help identify the most deserving Team. The Team's engineering content must focus on the design and build stage of the Team's Robot.

Here is what the judges had to say:

This team had a comprehensive and detailed engineering portfolio. It clearly demonstrated how their robot is able to consistently knock the powershots autonomously during end game. This team's colorful diagrams and CAD are far from CORNY.

Winner: Team 14423 RoboCorns

2nd Place: Team 16468 Green Lemons

Inspire Award

The Inspire Award is given to the team that best embodies the "challenge" of the FIRST Tech Challenge program.
