Polson Robotics Team Wins Judges Award

Last month students on the Polson Middle School robotics team participated in their very first VEX IQ robotics competition. The competition was a success and one of Polson’s five teams came home with a trophy.

This is the first year having a robotics team at Polson according to Dan Grenier, the CTE Program Coordinator at the high school and the middle school robotics advisor at Polson. The competition on January 18, 2020 was a first for Polson students and one four-person team came home with the Judges Award.

The Judges Award isn’t awarded based on points but on more subjective criteria such as showing improvement and helping others.

“I was told this team won for being knowledgeable, friendly, kind and supportive of all teams,” said Grenier.

The winning team was 1695E: Gabe Ruggiero-Cesar, Robbie Ginsburg, Patrick Coulis, and Jack Varone
