FIRST LEGO League Champion's Award

The FLL Champion's Award is the most prestigious award that an FLL team can win. It celebrates the ultimate success of the FIRST mission and the FLL values. It measures how the team members inspire and motivate others about the excitement of science and technology, solve problems, and demonstrate respect and gracious professionalism to everyone involved in the competition. One tremendous FLL team wins the Champion's Award at each of the Championship level tournaments held across the globe. With more than 85 Championship Tournaments, that's a lot of inspiration!
