Our Chairman's Journey

The Chairman's Award is the most prestigious award in FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). It honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the mission of FIRST. The Chairman's Award recognizes teams for their exemplary efforts in spreading the FIRST message. It was created to keep the central focus of FRC on transforming in ways that will inspire greater levels of respect and honor of science.

The Chairman's Award holds a special place in the Metal Jackets' hearts. What we love about Chairman's Award is that it is not something you can win after just one season. It requires years of hard work and dedication not only as a robotics team, but as important figures in our community. Every team member we have had, every event we have hosted or helped at, has contributed towards who we are as a team today. We are proud of our wins, but it is Chairman's behavior that makes a Chairman's team, not the blue banner.
