FIRST Lego League Qualifier Registration – Dec 5th
St. Agnes Academy and Strake Jesuit College Prep
The Champion’s Award recognizes a team that embodies the FIRST LEGO League experience, by fully embracing our Core Values while achieving excellence and innovation in both the Robot Game and the Project.
The Judges had following to say about this stellar team:
|Champion||3203||Resistance is Futile||None of the judges were “board” with this team’s presentations. This team seemed to work together, choosing to test rather than argue. Because of their strong efforts, we couldn’t resist giving the Champion award to Team 3203, Resistance is Futile!|
The Judges Award: During the course of competition, the Judges may encounter teams whose unique efforts, performance or dynamics merit recognition. Some teams have a story that sets them apart in a noteworthy way. Sometimes a team is so close to winning an award that the Judges choose to give special recognition to the team. Judges Awards allow Judges the freedom to recognize remarkable teams that stand out for reasons other than the Core Awards categories.
The judges had the following to say about this team.
|18344||Rising Star Award||SHGS – Everstorm||This team exhibited exceptional enthusiasm in everything they did. With their excitement and energy, they took the judges’ rooms by storm. Congratulations to Team 18344 Everstorm.|

The Project Award: Judges look for teams whose quality research, innovative solutions, community sharing and presentation best reflect an in-depth understanding of the scientific disciplines involved with the Project. In order to be eligible to win this award, each team was required to identify a problem with the way we make or handle trash, create an innovative solution to that problem, and share their solution with others.
The Judges had this to say about this very deserving team:
|1st||2588||AWEBOTS||This team brought “light” to a specific problem in their community and designed an effective solution to solve it. With their design, they are helping to “box in” the problem of landfill waste. Congratulations to Team 2588.|
|2nd||18134||LEGO Raiders||This team could even keep Jack Sparrow on the Straight and Narrow. They really knocked it out of the ball park with their Astros project theme. Congratulations to team 18134, LEGO Raiders!|
|3rd||17218||Robo Raiders||This team’s innovative solution “sealed” their victory in the judges’ minds. When it comes to picking up trash, they showed us that there’s an app for that. Congratulations to team 17218, Roboraiders!|
Robot Design Award.
Judges look for teams whose design work stands out. Judges evaluate mechanical design, innovation, programming effectiveness and team strategies for solving missions to assess overall design quality. The Judges said this about this award-winning team:
|1st||1638||RoboKids||This team impressed the judges with their mechanical design. Their heavy-duty robot not only could perform several missions per trip but was made for quick changing of attachments. We “dog-eared” their judging sheet because we wanted to recognize their efforts. The first prize winner in robot design is Team 1638 – RoboKids.|
|2nd||19295||Jersey Voltage Purple||This team achieved all three skill areas: mechanical design, programming & strategy, and innovation. The team accomplished all demonstrated skills in all areas and exemplary in mechanical efficiency. Congratulations to team 19295, Jersey Voltage Purple!|
|3rd||2136||Cable Connection||This team had strong efforts across all Robot Design categories. They saw the light with their sensors, were able to reuse blocks of code, and their trident attachment scored points. They really “connected the dots” across all categories – Team 2136, Cable Connection.|
Core Values Award.
FIRST LEGO League presents this award to the team that best demonstrates extraordinary enthusiasm and spirit, inspiration, exceptional partnership, and the utmost respect to its own teammates and in its support and encouragement of fellow teams.
The Judges had this to say about this cohesive group:
|1st||17355||Thunderbolts||This team exemplifies Inspiration, Teamwork & Gracious Professionalism. Despite being a Rookie Team, their dedication for outreach and educational youtube video shocked the judges with its originality. Congratulations to Team 17355 Thunderbolts!|
|2nd||18057||SHGS Middle||This award goes to an FLL Rookie Team. They displayed enthusiasm and a clear problem-solving process, even had a back-up solution to the challenge. Another name for them could be the BB’s. 2nd place in Core Values goes to Team 18057, The Battery Bashers.|
|3rd||4752||NCS Team 2||This award goes to a 2nd year veteran FLL team. They may be small, but their friendship is mighty. They don’t make too many mistakes, but when they do, they learn and succeed. 3rd place in Core Values goes to Team 4752, Trial and Error!|
