Gold Circle Volunteer Award Winners for 2021-2022

The past year has brought out the best in many FIRST Chesapeake Volunteers that it was impossible to recognize just one “Volunteer of the Year.” Instead, we have created a special award celebrating the outstanding contributions of several FTC or FRC volunteers.

The GOLD CIRCLE VOLUNTEER AWARD recognizes volunteers that have gone above and beyond to support the mission of FIRST Chesapeake. Volunteers were nominated by other volunteers, team members, coaches, and mentors.
