Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame celebrates past FIRST Championship Chairman’s Award Winners with banners of recognition.
Winners have oftentimes participated in or started outreach projects within their communities. This includes mentoring or starting FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge, FIRST Robotics Competition teams. These projects allow for more students to become involved FIRST and are incredibly important in continuing FIRST‘s legacy.
Winners submitted a video and essay describing how they’ve spread FIRST‘s message throughout their community. In these submissions, aforementioned outreach projects are described in detail, and teams expand upon how these projects have directly affected both them and their community.
