FIRST Tech Challenge Awards

High FivesTeams receive awards at FTC Qualifying and Championship Tournaments in recognition of their achievements in robot design, creativity, innovation, team performance, outreach and enthusiasm.  Giving awards for outstanding achievement builds self-esteem in students and is a great way to encourage them to continue pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathmatics.

The highest level of achievement at an FTC competition is the Inspire Award.  It incorporates elements of all other award categories.  Teams who win this award at a Championship Tournament advance to the World Championship in St. Louis, Mo.  Additional awards are broken down into three categories: Judged, Performance-based and Special.
