  • Orlando Save Award presented by Edgar Allen Ohms – FRC Team 5176
  • Orlando FRC Judges’ Award (description/award quote below)

“During the course of the competition, the judging panel encounters teams whose unique efforts, performance, or dynamics merit recognition, yet do not fit into any of the existing award categories. Today the judge’s have defined the following special award as the Judge’s Award for one such deserving team. It’s called the “Assistive Technology Award.” This team is not afraid to get their feet wet. It has been making a splash in Assistive Technology on a local, state, and international level. As a pioneer among FIRST teams, this team has floated the way to the judges’ hearts. Congratulations to team 4118, Roaring Riptide!”
