These are the buttons for the 2010 Boston Regional Recognition Award buttons that each team will receive at Boston. Each team will get five buttons to use to recognize those individuals deserving of recognition at the regional. Please take the time to recognize someone!
Boston Regional Attending Teams:
FIRST is all about recognition and inspiration. This absolutely holds true for the FIRST Boston Regional event. To further encourage each of us to create the world we would love to live in, we present the 2010 “BOSTON REGIONAL RECOGNITION” BUTTON. This button will not be distributed freely, but must be EARNED by an individual.
The way it works…
Each team participating in the Boston Regional (about 53 teams) will receive a packet containing 5 (five) “BOSTON REGIONAL RECOGNITION” buttons and a Recognition Data Form for each button. Each team should plan to award a button to an individual at the event who should be recognized for outstanding behavior in any of the following areas:
- Gracious Professionalism
- Spirit / Enthusiasm
- Extreme Safety
- Bringing people together
Individuals could be members of another team, FIRST staff, venue staff, the concierge at your hotel, or the driver of your bus. Assessing individuals to recognize is going to be somewhat subjective. However, the overriding factors are actions “Deserving Special Recognition.”
Not only will recognized individuals receive a limited edition button, but the team awarding the button should also record the name, team number or other affiliation, and reason for the recognition on a Personal Recognition Data Form at the time of the award. Each button you present should have an accompanying form. The forms should be turned in at the Pit Administration Table by noon on Saturday. Please complete this short form! Information about recognized individuals from all forms returned will be posted on the Rolling Thunder (Team 1511) website shortly after the competition.
So put your Gracious Professional game-face on and do what you always do at FIRST competitions, create an environment we all wish we lived in everyday and please take the time to recognize someone who deserves a Boston Regional Recognition Button!
Go Boston Teams!

The 2010 Boston Recognition program was developed following the model set by MOE (Miracle Workerz) FRC365. The plans for hosting this program at your own regional event are found on their website: http://moe365.org/pra-howto.php Rolling Thunder has cloned this program to provide recognition to all the great supporters of FIRST at the Finger Lakes Regional and now at the Boston Regional. MOE brought this to the Finger Lakes Regional when they competed there and we wanted to keep that tradition alive and spread it to Boston! GO MOE!!!
