Winning Chairman's at the same regional multiple times?

Hello!

Last year (2017), my team won the Chairman's Award at the Miami Valley Regional.

We are submitting the Award again this year, but my coach and Chairman's team are wondering if it's possible to win Chairman's at the same regional 2 years in a row?

We've had a couple of people on the team say that we can't, but I was looking at the award descriptions on the FIRST website, but it only says that you can win the award once during each season.

If anyone has an answer, that would be great! It would really help us plan out our timeline of events since we have a Week 1 and Week 5 regional.

There is no such restriction.

Re: Winning Chairman's at the same regional multiple times?

There are no restrictions on how many years in a row a team can win at a single Regional or District event. I believe it was team 236 won at CT Regional for something like 6 or 7 years in a row, some time back.

Re: Winning Chairman's at the same regional multiple times?

All that being said, sometimes regionals come up with their own rules on how Chairman’s will be awarded, and unfortunately there’s not much you can do about that. I don’t think we have enough data on MVR to judge whether that’s the case there or not.

Re: Winning Chairman's at the same regional multiple times?

2338 has won Chairman's at Midwest the last three years. It is possible but every year we say it won't happen again. We're hoping to win at an earlier regional this year so i can sleep at night. 😂 I recommend making leave behinds like a yearbook or something if you dont already, this way they can refrence your submission during the award decision making process.

When I was on 781 we won the Chairman's Award back to back (2013 and 2014) at the Greater Toronto East Regional.

Re: Winning Chairman's at the same regional multiple times?

I have judged chairman's (three years) and I have mentored/coached a team that won chairman's at the same event in consecutive years. What your team has done to inspire and promote the principles of FIRST (more than a robot...), and your team's ability to communicate/provide evidence to support that, is what decides the winner. A lot of focus is often put on the essay but just like a job interview, you can look good on paper but how you communicate in real life makes the difference.

My team is wants to win chairman's at a district, and we won last year, so it's good to know that you can win twice or more.
