An incredible weekend and emotional roller coaster ended with MegaHurtz earning a spot as the St. Joseph District Finalist. Taking home 2nd place is the highest our team has ever achieved at this event. The St. Joseph District event is an extremely competitive event and a go-to destination for the top teams of the state. The popularity of this event is such that ESPN has featured the playoffs live for the last few years!
Topping off an amazing achievement, MegaHurtz was also awarded the St. Joseph District Judge's Award. According to FIRST, "During the course of the competition, the judging panel may decide that a team's unique efforts, performance, or dynamics merit recognition, yet do not fit into any of the existing award categories." The judges named this year's Judge's Award the "Full STEAM Ahead Award".
This family has their sights on the future of FIRST. From the unique design of their buttons and pancake breakfasts, they're going to STEAM the way from more FIRST teams. Contribution to the community never HURTZ.
