Awards

Botball YAC gives awards at the Global Conference on Educational Robotics.

Community Award

Botball Community participants are awarded BotPoints for contributing to the Forums and User Articles sections of the site. BotPoints can also be awarded by YAC admins for helping with the site (a total of 10 BotPoints were awarded for this purpose in the 2012 season, in return for a user reporting a bug in the website). Spamming can result in a BotPoints penalty. The Community Award is given to the team with the highest combined total of BotPoints for all current participants.

2012 BotPoints Team rankings:

Winner: Norman Advanced Robotics (113 BotPoints)
2nd Place: Palm Desert High School (89 BotPoints)
3rd Place: DeWitt Perry Middle School (64 BotPoints)
