Question Lettering in robotics?

are there other teams out there that offer their students letters in robotics, like academic and athletic letters? our school is considering it and i was just wondering if other teams may do the same thing.

LoL, you guys are talking about the proud (well, not really) recipient of a letter for making the Academic Challenge varsity team freshman year. Personally there's no way that I'd ever get a jacket for it, or for the one that I got for being in band for two years. I don't know anyone who would wear it for either of those.

Back on team 7, we tried to get letters for robotics for several years. We were rejected by the principal every time. They offer letters in band and we figured we were a heck of a lot more competitve than band is (watch me get beat by all the band people around here ). So I lettered in badminton instead.

I'm pretty sure that team 254 (cheesy poofs) got letters when they were still at Broadway.

This year the school changed, and I don't know if they still get letters from the new school.

Angry Team 108 Used to...

1998 and before, the "core team" that went to chicago would actually recieve a denim motorola jacket with the big M stamped on the back. But after that they never did it again. Go fig. I think denim is more fitting than leather jackets anyways, don you guys???

letters....

Gosh, I even envy those of you that had your band count as something to get a letter for. My high school wasn't even that far advanced. In fact, unless you are in a "traditional" sport (aka football, basketball, swimming....we don't even have a badminton team ) you wern't able to get a letter....

Actually, The High Priest really isn't sure if we get letters or not for either FIRST or band.

At my old school you got letters for sports, band, choir, and I think athletic trainers. Many other teams tried to get them but there wasn't ever hope. The paperwork would get moved from one side of the desk to the trash can. The only thing that was ever read was the subject of the petition. Good luck to those of you who are trying to get letters.
C~ya,
Carolyn

good idea

I like the idea of lettering in a robotics, but i have a question. At our skool they put a patch on the letter that signifies what sprt you are in, iI.E. a football for football or a racket for tennis, i dunno if other schools do this but ours does, so what would we use for the patch? and whaere would we get it?

Ours is pretty much a done deal. The principal has given us permission to design the letter jackets (just for robotics). But we still need to make the criteria that allows you to get the jacket. You can't let everyone get one (well, maybe you can) So for the teams that do offer letters, what is the criteia that the students have to meet?

Nope we didn't

I know Jason has mentioned something about it before and I've seen the Broadway jackets but I don't think were gonna get them.
