When is the winning animation announced? We remember seeing it for the first time at kickoff, but we can't find any information to back that up.


We plan to announce the winner sometime around January 6, 2020.

We will post the winner on the Safety page, on this blog, and in the next available FIRST Robotics Competition Team blast.
