2024 Digital Animation Award is Now Open!

Nov 15, 2023 Written by Fiona Hanlon, FIRST Robotics Competition Team Experience Specialist





We’re excited to share that Digital Animation Award competition is now open. A big thanks to our friends at for sponsoring and judging this award!

This is an optional award that is open to all FIRST® Robotics Competition teams. The Digital Animation Award is offered to help encourage students to cultivate skills in design and creation of animation including, but not limited to, storytelling, creativity, use of computer software, and an understanding of different techniques and forms of animation.


2024 challenge: Create an animation of “crescendo” that celebrates your FIRST® experience. 


You can interpret “crescendo” in any way you wish:

  • Reaching for new heights
  • Conquering your own personal challenges
  • Celebrating success
  • Finding a new peak experience
  • Etc.

What you choose isn’t nearly as important as how you use your Digital Animation skills to show your innovative concept.


Teams have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, January 18, 2024 to create their animation. Specific details on how to submit and requirements can be found on the Digital Animation Award webpage.
