2016 Award Recipients
The Girl With Wrench Award
The Girl With Wrench Award is the most prestigious award given out by SWAT. It is awarded to a girl, by the mentors, who has made significant and unique contributions to the team during her time as a Girl With Wrench. During her time on the team, she has inspired countless people, dedicated many hours and left a lasting legacy that will carry on long after she has graduated. The Girl With Wrench Award is presented to a long standing member on SWAT and can only be won once.
The Rookie All-star award recognizes a girl who goes above and beyond, despite it being her first year on the team.
The Most Dedicated award is given to a girl who always gives 100%. Showing up to mostly all the meetings, attending all the competitions and working on robotics even after team meetings are over.
The Most Improved award is awarded to a girl who has learned the most over the season. Taking it into her own hands to take on new opportunities to become an even better SWAT girl.
The Gracious Professionalism award recognizes a girl who is not just a great team player but also supports and encourages everyone around her. She embodies what both SWAT and FIRST stands for.
The Captains Award, similar to the Judges Award, is given to a girl who is invaluable to the team but does not fit any of the other award criteria. It is through both the big and little things that this girl does that makes her crucial to the team.
