The awards section of the manual has been posted. You can find it here.
You’ll see we’ve added a FIRST 3D Printing Award, sponsored by America Makes and ORNL, to be presented at Championship, to go along with the 3D printers we’re making available through FIRST Choice – once FIRST Choice is up and running. As you’ve seen from their recent updates, our Kit of Parts team, Kate and Collin, has been working very hard with our friends at AndyMark to fix the issues we’ve experienced. I join them in sincerely apologizing to you for the problems, and thank you for your continued patience as we work through this. I’d also like to thank our wonderful FIRST IT staff for their advice and additional support on this issue as well, they’ve been tremendously helpful.
One thing you will not see in the award section is the return of the 3D Design and Animation award. I haven’t given up on this yet, but we are running out of time to put this in place for the 2014 season. This sounds like it should be a simple thing, but every award has lots of moving parts that need to work together. I’ll let you know one way or the other when the decision on this award is finalized.
