FIRST Chairman's Award


About the Chairman’s Award

The FIRST Robotics Competition is about much more than the mechanics of building a robot or winning a competitive event. It is about the partnership among people who are part of the FIRST community and the impact on those who participate in FIRST programs with a united goal of achieving FIRST’s mission. The FIRST mission is to change the way young people regard science and technology and to inspire an appreciation for the real-life rewards and career opportunities in these fields.

Most Amazing Moment 

1511 & the Chairman's Award

Since it's inception, 1511 has recognized that FIRST was not just about building a robot for a really exciting competition, but that it was about building a team, getting involved in the community and giving back. The amazing partnerships that have been built between Penfield High School, their main sponsor, Harris RF, the community, mentors, students, parents and teachers has allowed this team to become something wonderful.
