Hall of Fame Teams

The FIRST Hall of Fame inducts two new teams every year.  The teams are inducted into the Hall of Fame after being awarded the Championship Chairman’s Award, the most prestigious award in the FIRST community. It recognizes role model teams within the FIRST community for their success both on and off the field, and the manner in which they’ve spread the ethos of FIRST inside and outside of their team. The criteria for this award goes beyond the scope of building robots, and instead focuses on  recognizing a team that reflects sustained excellence and impact within the FIRST community, in its own community, and beyond.
