PSA - Submit Awards Early

PSA to teams unfamiliar with awards submissions:

SUBMIT YOUR AWARDS EARLY.

If you have not already done so. This doesn’t mean tomorrow before the deadline, I mean today, I mean yesterday, I mean last week!

Why?

  • Character counts differ from Google Docs to Word to the submission form itself. BE PREPARED TO CUT CHARACTER COUNT AND LOSE FORMATTING!

  • Server load. Sometimes FIRST does not account for traffic on their websites. The last thing you want is for the deadline to pass, and you email FIRST for help.

  • Things just go wrong. Why not mitigate risk and act early?

SUBMIT TODAY! Save yourself some headache and anxiety! This goes for mentors and students.

I agree. There is no reason for a team not to submit one of it’s mentors for the Woodie Flowers Award. Please be sure to honor your mentors with this submission.
