If not all districts are awarding District Championship Chairman's Awards, do all District Chairman's Award winning teams qualify to compete for the Championship Chairman's Awards on May 2 or are only Regional Chairman's Award winning teams considered?

Hello Ari!

At the Virtual Showcase on May 2, we will only be recognizing the District and Regional Chairman’s Award winners. We will not be awarding a Championship Chairman’s Award this season. Please see this Team Blast for more information: https://info.firstinspires.org/fr-3-27-2020 Please note that these will only be recaps, as all the District and Regional Award winners will have been announced previously. Please see this page for the schedule of awards shows: https://www.firstinspires.org/resource-library/frc/2020-award-shows

Thanks!

Are we to take this post to mean that the Championship Chairman's Awards will be given out this year?

Thank you for putting together the awards to honor the deserving individuals and teams. Part of winning any FIRST award has been receiving it in front of a crowd, shaking all the hands, and being able to share in that moment with your friends and teammates. While that cannot be done today, could FIRST re-honor the awardees (Chairman's teams, volunteers of the year, and WFFA winners) by announcing them at their next official event?

Hi Steve.

Thanks for the suggestion. We will consider this!

Thanks!

How about releasing STL files for the clock, in a smaller format so we all can 3d print one 9or several).  Really liked that thing!

 

Hello Jim.

Thanks for the suggestion! Can you please send an email to firstroboticscompetition@firstinspires.org with your request?

Thanks!
