Top Blue Banner Winners (Post 2018 Champs)

Using the TBA API through Google Apps Script (Tools -> Script Editor), I wrote a script that pulls down the blue banner award history (banners from Event Wins, Chairman’s Awards, and Woodie Flowers Awards) of each team to populate this spreadsheet. The number of blue banners listed in this spreadsheet appears consistent with the number of blue banners on the team history pages of TBA though sometimes inconsistent with the Most Blue Banners list on the Insights page. The Top “50” Blue Banner Winners sheet currently contains the top 54 teams due to a tie between 13 teams with 17 banners.

Interestingly, 21.9% of all Blue Banners earned by the listed 6,093 teams were won by teams in the Top “50”. 21.7% of all Event Wins, 25.1% of all Chairman’s Awards (and Finalists), and 16.7% of all Woodie Flowers Awards (and Finalists) were earned by the Top “50”. Less than 1% (54/6093) of all FRC teams have earned over 20% of all blue banners listed. The youngest team listed in the Top “50” is 2834 at 10 years old with 18 banners, followed by 2590, 2614, and 2974 at 11 years. 14 of the teams in the Top “50” are in the Hall of Fame.

254 has the most blue banners at 52 and the most event wins at 47. 2056 has the highest average number of blue banners per year at 3.5 and highest average number of event wins per year at 2.92. 503 has the most banners from Chairman’s Awards at 18. 987 and 525 are tied for the most banners from Woodie Flowers Awards at 5 each.
