At a remote award ceremony on May 8, 2021, the Coconino High School “CocoNuts” Robotics Team received several awards for their robot design and continuing positive impact on the community. The CocoNuts were honored with the Autonomous Award, Dean’s List Finalist Award, and Southwestern Region Chairman’s Award. The CocoNuts will have a remote interview in June to compete for the Championship Chairman’s Award, the highest honor a team can receive in FIRST. 

The Chairman’s Award is the most prestigious honor in FIRST. It recognizes a team that best represents a model for others to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST. The Chairman’s Award is presented to the team that is judged to have the most significant, measurable impact through its partnerships on its members and community over a sustained period, not just a single build season. The winner is able to demonstrate progress towards FIRST’s mission of transforming our culture. The winning team will compete against other winning teams for the Championship Chairman’s Award.
