I have been volunteering with the Media Center at the Championship Event since 2008, Overdrive.
We coordinate the media coverage of FIRST at the CMP.
This includes print/web journalists from local communities, as well as National and International news outlets.
One such example, a report by Soledad O’Brien:
I am putting out as request for any compelling stories this year.
I am already aware of many including the trailer crash for 801 (will be at the CMP) and 1592, and Robots 4603 being hijacked from FedEx, etc…
What I am asking:
- A list of what teams you think should be watched closely in each Division.
- Why you think a specific team may win the CMP Chairman’s Award.
- Rookie teams (>4450) that bear watching, and why.
- Examples of teams at the CMP who have overcome adversity or triumphed beyond expectations.
