Hello Friend,

Maximum Robot Size Reminder: We are asking teams once again to make sure that their robot, including bumpers, stays within the dimensions listed in R03. This is critically important. See the recent blog post here:http://firstinspires.org/robotics/frc/blog/2017-dont-be-large-another-award-reminder. Robot rules can be found in Section 8 of the Game and Season Manual here: https://firstfrc.blob.core.windows.net/frc2017/Manual/Sections/08-Robot.pdf.
 
Award Submission Deadlines Approaching: The Chairman’s Award and Woodie Flowers Award will close for submissions Thursday, February 9th at 3:00 pm Eastern Time. Submissions for the Entrepreneurship Award and Dean’s List Award close on Thursday, February 16th at 3:00 pm Eastern Time.
 
Please note that these submission deadlines are all in Eastern Time, and are firm.  Teams should plan to submit early to increase their chances of being on time.  No one wants your efforts to go to waste because of a late submission.
 
Detailed information about these awards can be found on our website here: http://www.firstinspires.org/resource-library/frc/submitted-awards.
 
These awards, with the exception of the Dean’s List Award, must be submitted by a student award submitter from the student’s firstinspires.org Dashboard. The student may submit the award by selecting the “Complete Youth Member Registration” button from the “I Want To” menu of the Dashboard and then selecting the “Awards” tab from the top of the Youth Team Member Registration System page. The option to submit the Dean’s List Award is available to the Lead Coach/Mentor 1 and 2 on the Dashboard. The Lead Coach/Mentor 1 and 2 also have the option to designate another adult mentor to be the Dean’s List Award Submitter, if the Dean’s List nominee is the Lead Coach/Mentor 1 and/or 2’s child.
 
Coaches/Mentors can designate up to two (2) student award submitters by checking the “Award Submitter” box next to the student’s name in the team’s Full Roster, also accessed through the coach’s firstinspires.org Dashboard.
