Chairman’s award

Team 4201 is proud to announce that we received the highest honor and most prestigious award that can be given to an FRC team: Chairman’s Award! The Chairman’s Award is the most prestigious award at FIRST, it honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST.  The Chairman’s Award is an achievement that very few teams are able to achieve and it would not have been possible without the support of our students, families, administration, and sponsors. We thank everyone that has supported our team through our continuing journey. Since we won this award, our team now be attending World Championships in Houston!
