Edited from the CocoNuts recent Press Release:
The CocoNuts recently traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah and competed in the Utah FIRST Robotics Competition Regional March 12-14, 2015. The CocoNuts were named the Regional Chairman’s Award winner for the 6th time in their seven years of eligibility for this prestigious honor.
The Regional Chairman’s Award is described as “the most prestigious award given at a FIRST Robotics Competition event. It honors a team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the goals and purposes of FIRST. The Chairman’s Award is presented to the team best judged to have the most significant measureable impact on its partnerships, among its participants, and community over a sustained period, not just a single build season. The winner is able to demonstrate progress toward FIRST’s mission of transforming our culture. The recipient team is invited to the FIRST World Championship where it will compete for the Chairman’s Award against the Chairman’s Award winners from all the other qualifying events.”
The CocoNuts would like to thank the Flagstaff community for continuing to support the CocoNuts and our efforts to spread FIRST throughout our region, and to the community members who took the time to write letters for our Chairman’s Award submission.
