In an effort to recognize the leadership and dedication of the most outstanding FIRST Tech Challenge students, the Kamen family sponsors an Award for selected top students known as the FIRST Dean’s List. Since its introduction in 2010, the FIRST Dean’s List Award has attracted the attention of prestigious colleges and universities who desire to recruit FIRST Dean’s List students.

Each FIRST Tech Challenge Team is invited to select up to two (2) students who are in the 10th or 11th grade as FIRST Dean’s List Semi-Finalists. The students are great examples of student leaders who have led their Teams and communities to increased awareness for FIRST and its mission. These students have also achieved personal technical expertise and accomplishment. It is the intention of FIRST that these individuals will continue on, post-Award, as great leaders, student alumni, and advocates of FIRST.

Teams competing in British Columbia Championships have until Jan. 15, 2019 to submit their nominations. The two Dean’s List Finalists from British Columbia will be announced at the Championships on Feb. 23, 2019.
