We are happy to let you know the 2018-19 FIRST Chesapeake FTC event photos are up on our Flickr page! (Not all events had volunteer photographers, so some qualifiers are not represented)

If you are planning on submitting nominations for the Dean's List for FRC, the deadline for submissions is February 14 at 3:00 pm EST.
 
After careful review of the criteria for the Dean’s List Award, each FIRST Robotics Competition team is invited to nominate up to two student members as Semi-finalists who are 10th or 11th grade students. It’s important that teams nominate only those students they believe are truly deserving of this honor. A mentor, who is not related to either of the students chosen as the team’s Dean’s List Semi-finalists, shall complete and submit the application in the Team Registration System to compete for the FIRST Dean’s List Finalist designation at one (1) qualifying event. Students previously selected as FIRST Dean’s List Semi-finalists or Finalists in a prior year are eligible for nomination again this year provided they meet all of the criteria.
