Atlas would like to congratulate the FireBears, a robotics team that was named Chairman’s Award winners at the Upper Midwest Awards show. Atlas is a proud sponsor of the FireBears and we look forwards to the continued growth and success of this organization.

“The Chairman’s Award is the most prestigious award at FIRST, it honors the team that best represents a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the mission of FIRST. It was created to keep the central focus of FIRST Robotics Competition on the ultimate goal of transforming the culture in ways that will inspire greater levels of respect and honor for science and technology, as well as encouraging more of today’s youth to become science and technology leaders.

This is the first time that the FireBears have won this award!  The Chairman’s Award represents a whole team effort and an important part of our team is our sponsors.

Thank you to our sponsors for believing in our team and generously supporting our students, our team, our Roseville Area High School and our Roseville area community!”

– Tom Lageson,

Roseville Robotics Lead Mentor
