[FRC Blog] 2019 Awards Update

We have been hard at work making improvements and have some news about the FIRST Robotics Competition Awards that we are excited to share! Here are some highlights:

Gracious Professionalism Award:


Many of you are aware that at events, each team would receive a form where they could nominate another team for the Gracious Professionalism (GP) Award. We found that these forms were not the best way to obtain the information we wanted. So, for the 2019 season, we will not be using the GP forms and instead will be focusing on more training for the Judges to help them decide the winners for this award without the form. Be sure to share your team GP stories with visiting judges.

Team Spotlight:

One thing we had given teams the option to do was submit some information about the team that Judges could then review before the event. This was on the Lead Coach/Mentor 1 and 2’s Dashboard and was called the Team Spotlight. It wasn’t a mandatory form, and we found that only some teams would fill out these sections. Since we were not getting information from all teams, it was not as useful as we had hoped. We also felt that these questions are usually answered from the pit interviews, so we have decided to remove this form from the Dashboard. You will notice the link is still on the Dashboard, but the portal is closed and is not accepting any additions. We wanted to let teams know that they shouldn’t worry about filling this out.

Chairman’s Award

While working on updating the awards, we noticed that the Chairman’s Award was missing some information (things like the character counts for the executive summary, etc.) and was not laid out on the website in the easiest manner. We went through and reorganized it to present the information in a more efficient manner and made sure to add any additional information that would be helpful to teams submitting. You will also notice some wording updates to stress the importance of FIRST. Be sure you check out the updates on the website here.

Autonomous Award Sponsored by Ford:

Remember this blog? We announced earlier this year that we had a new award that was to be presented at Championships only. Due to everyone’s excitement and the success of the award, and with Ford's continuing sponsorship, we have decided to expand this award to be available at all regional and district events. Make sure you check out the awards description as it has been slightly updated since we originally released it. You'll also notice that like the Rookie All Star and Rookie Inspiration Awards, this may not be presented at every event. We are looking forward to seeing some incredible Autonomous Actions for the 2019 season!

Entrepreneurship Award:

We have completely revamped the Entrepreneurship Award. Read all the details about the new guidelines and requirements for the award here. You will notice it no longer require teams to submit through an online portal. Instead, to be considered for this award, we are asking teams to prepare a summary business plan to bring to events and give to the judges when they come to the pits. Because Judges will be receiving these at the event, there is a page limit, but teams should also be able to speak to the ideas inside the document. We are hoping that this new method will allow teams to submit in a format that is more useful to them and could be used to recruit potential sponsors. With the removal of the portal, teams are also given more time to finish their business plan and we are hoping this will increase the number of submissions we receive. We cannot wait to see team’s business plans and we hope you are as excited about these changes as we are!



We are super excited for all of these improvements and are confident that these changes will help make for a more consistent team experience.

While the Chairman’s Award is about “more than robots”, teams often leverage their robots to enhance their impact on the broader community. For this reason, it is expected teams in contention for the Chairman’s Award will have built a robot appropriate to the game’s challenges for the season. This does not require the team to have ranked at a certain level during the event, but does require teams to put in more than just the minimal effort necessary to field a drivable robot.

Seems a little reminiscent of the 2011 "and their kits" Team Update.

Dave Lavery was quoted in that thread and I think it still applies today.

Re: [FRC Blog] 2019 Awards Update

I'm a little upset about the auto award. If this is another award that cant stack, a lot of really good robots are going to miss out on design awards at regionals simply because they have the only high level auto. I know "all awards are equal" but we all know they're not. And this wouldnt feel as much of an achievement as industrial design, quality, or engineering excellence.

If it does stack and it's an objective award like "highest rookie seed" then it's fine.

I feel like the teams that will win the auton award will be teams that put it on the same level as a design award, as they are teams that specify a high level of programming.

Seems like a judged award to me:
Quote:
Guidelines
The award is based on the performance of the robot’s autonomous (non-operator guided) operations during matches

Consistent and reliable operation is weighted more heavily than the ability to score maximum points during any specific autonomously managed actions

A team spokesperson must be able to explain:
-- How the robot understands its surroundings, navigates on the field or positions onboard mechanisms and then executes tasks.
-- The factors the teams considered that could interfere with success during autonomously managed actions.
-- The design, development, and testing that was done for the robot’s autonomously managed actions.

Re: [FRC Blog] 2019 Awards Update

Coming from a team that primarily used VEX programs to inspire the younger generations, the chairmans update is upsetting. If the mission of FIRST is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators then it shouldn’t matter the means that brings said inspiration whether it be VEX, FIRST or any other STEM program.

Maybe im blind but I hold IoC in the same regard as the rest of the engineering awards, and dont really know many who actually see it as truly "Lesser" besides the fact that its a bit too broad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Also, who sees it as an auto award? the 4 times 4513 has earned it was all for things the bot could do in teleop...

I agree. I wasn't on the team when 842 won HOF, but a lot of what we did was outside FIRST programs. NURC, Railfair, Mate, and the numerous other things the team did certainly fall outside the scope of FIRST but were very influential in our community. I probably wouldn't even have joined the school/team and been a part of FIRST had the team not reached the community in those ways. If a team is making significant impact in their communities, I don't think it should matter if they are using FIRST, VEX, or any other tool to do so.

The idea that FIRST would use their highest prestige award as a means for expanding their program makes a lot of sense from a business perspective... but from a culture change perspective and in terms of promoting their mission...

FIRST Mission Statement:
Quote:
The mission of FIRST® is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
...I don't think the new Chairman's Award description improves anything. Promoting students to pursue STEM fields through non-FIRST programs such as VEX, BEST, etc. still helps to change the culture, and still works towards achieving FIRST's mission. Even outreach projects and community engagement events that aren't robotics related, but still promote STEM and engage with the local community about the importance of STEM, fulfill FIRST's mission. I can understand the logic behind FIRST not wanting to promote their primary competitor in their target market... My biggest concern stems from the fact that the new wording seems to disincentivize general community engagement activities and other non-FIRST related outreach events that many teams do.

Non-FIRST related outreach is a staple of many FRC teams. Those teams create a massive positive impact in their communities and throughout world. I would hate for a (smart) business decision to cause these teams to discontinue their non-FIRST related outreach. Luckily, I believe many (I hope a large majority) teams aren't motivated by the Chairmans Award, but instead are motivated by a drive to improve their community and the world.

Re: [FRC Blog] 2019 Awards Update

FIRST isn't a for profit business they should be worrying about their mission and not who has more teams. If the Red Cross started changing policy to actively disincentives people from supporting cancer research I think a lot of people would get upset.

I believe in FIRST's mission and have for a long time, I believe a little a less in the people employed to complete the mission today.
