Hello FTC Mentors,
Have you heard about FIRST Dean's List?
In an effort to recognize the leadership and dedication of FIRST’s most outstanding secondary school students, the Kamen family sponsors an award for selected 10th and 11th grade students known as the FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge Dean’s List. You can nominate 2 deserving students from your team, and they would become a Dean's list Semi-finalist for Wisconsin. The students would then be interviewed by a panel of judges and 3 students would be selected to represent the state at the FIRST World Championship in Houston.
Our "WI FTC Dean's List Interview Event" will take place the week of February 11th - February 17th, it is a remote interview only event!
FIRST has a great resource that explains how to access the submission information via your FIRST Dashboard.
When the lead mentor or secondary mentor is in the dashboard, you can click on the team profile and view "Certificates & Awards", in the drop down you'll click "FTC Dean's List Award Submission" to come to this main page.
If you look to the left, you can see where you can submit the second nominee.
Be sure to click the SAVE button at the bottom of the page once you answer all of the questions about your nominee. Once saved, the nomination will be automatically submitted on the 15th of the month before the event.
The deadline to submit your nominee is JANUARY 15th!
All the Best,
