Awards

In addition to matches, different awards can be awarded to the teams, such as the quality award, the creativity award, the safety award, the innovation in control (programming) award, etc. These awards are prepared in advance by the teams and are awarded by the judges who observe the teams before and during the competition by talking to the students.

Only three awards qualify for the championship:

  • The Chairman’s award (translated “president’s award” in Quebec). It is the most prestigious award in the competition. It honors the team which constitutes the best model for other teams and which integrates the objectives and values ​​of FIRST®. A video of approximately two minutes is to be shown and an oral is given to the judges. At the championship, the team that wins the Chairman’s award enters the Hall of Fame and is qualified for life for the championship.
  • The Engineering inspiration award. This award recognizes the team that has worked hard to spread their knowledge and the values ​​of engineering in their community.
  • The Rookie All Star award (“Rookie Team of the Year Award”). A rookie team is a team that participates for the first year in the competition. This award recognizes the best rookie team in the Region, both in terms of performance, in the community and in the organization of the team.
