  • Need info on Applying for Chairman's Award

    Hello! Our team is new to FRC and we are trying to get more information on applying for Chairman's award and we couldn't find specific guidelines on application- where to apply? What are the specific requirements (essay, community outreach, video, etc.)? What is a Principal letter? We can't see any link to apply in the STIMS. We appreciate all the help. Thanks.

    This forum, despite being the official forum of US First, doesn't get much traffic from FRC teams. You might get more response on chiefdelphi.com

    And as a rookie team, you're not eligible for the Chairman's Award.

      But it does get traffic from FRC Staff

      The requirements for the 2016 Chairman's Award will be included in the 2016 FRC Administrative Manual when it becomes available. I don't know what our exact timeframe is for this season, but as a reference, the 2015 Administrative Manual was posted on 12/12/14. Keep your eyes on the FRC Team Email Blasts and the FRC Blog (http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc/blog) for info on when the 2016 Administrative Manual goes live.

      For past year's requirements, you can find previous Admin manuals on the Archived Game Documentation page: http://www.firstinspires.org/resourc...-documentation

      As Gary noted, Rookie teams are not eligible to win the Chairman's Award, though please note that some grants (such as the NASA grant) may require you to submit a Chairman's Essay via STIMS (again, I'm not sure of the 2016 details, but in the past there was a checkbox to indicate you were submitting for this purpose).

      Hope that helps!

        Thank you Gary. We are applying for the Chairman's award as a NASA grant recipient.
