The Chairman’s Award was created to keep the central focus of the FIRST Robotics Competition as our ultimate goal for transforming the culture in ways that will inspire greater levels of respect and honor for science and technology, as well as encourage more of today’s youth to become scientists, engineers, and technologists.
The Chairman’s Award represents the spirit of FIRST. It honors the team that, in the judges’ estimation, best represents a model for other teams to emulate, and which embodies the goals and purpose of FIRST. It remains FIRST’s most prestigious award.
In 2003, the Cybersonics Technology Team 103 was bestowed with this great honor. Over the past twelve years, the team has been continuing to work with other FIRST Robotics teams across the nation and upholding the values set forth by FIRST.
