Award and Description
During the course of the competition, the judging panel may encounter a team whose unique efforts, performance or dynamics merit recognition, yet doesn’t fit into any of the existing award categories. To recognize these unique teams, FIRST offers a customizable judges award. The judging panel may select a team to be honored, as well as the name of the judges’ award. The Judges Award recognizes a team for their outstanding efforts, but does not factor into the Advancement Criteria.
