Feb 15, 2017 Written by Lori Burkhamer and Miriam Somero, Area Managers, FIRST Robotics Competition.


Entrepreneurship Award submissions are due Thursday, February 16, 2017, 3pm Eastern Time.

Entrepreneurship submissions must be submitted by a designated student awards submitter.

To find out how to designate a student as an award submitter please check out this link. Designating a student as an award submitter is a multi-step process, so it’s best to do this before you are ready to submit, so you can ensure you’ll be ready when the time comes.


FIRST Dean’s List Award submissions are due Thursday, February 16, 2017, 3pm Eastern Time.

The Dean’s List Award must be submitted by the team’s Lead Coach/Mentor 1 or Lead Coach/Mentor 2 who is not related to either of the students OR Lead Coach/Mentor 1 or 2 can invite another adult to be the Dean’s List Award submitter. The Dean’s List Award is submitted through the Team Registration System.

Check out some new Dean’s List Award resources here. If you need help assigning an Adult Award Submitter, see help here.

Note: Non-District team Mentors and semi-finalists will receive an email after the award portal closes stating at which Regional event the semi-finalist will interview. If they are from a District team, they will receive an email stating that they will receive further instructions from their District indicating at which event they will interview. The emails will also include a copy of the nomination letter in order to prepare the semi-finalist for the interview.
