My name is Savannah Smith, I am a senior at Klein Oak High School and have been on the Klein ISD Robotics Team, VorTX 3735 since my freshman year and have since served the team as Chairman's Lead, Business Lead, and Team Captain. Being in FIRST robotics has given me the opportunity to meet others worldwide, help others, and pursue my interests in engineering and community service.

This past weekend at the FIT Greenville District event, the Klein ISD robotics team, VorTX 3735 won the District Chairman's award. This 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.

For the past six months, the robotics team has been working on their essay and video submissions for the award, as well as their presentation. This award is a compilation of over 5 years of work for these students, through community service, volunteering, and mentoring throughout the district and the world. The Chairman's Team includes Samantha Taylor (Senior, KOHS), Alea Nablan (Junior, KOHS), Zahid Hossain (Senior, KCHS), Kimberly Wang (Junior, KOHS), and Shruthi Anish (Sophomore, KCHS).

This is the first time the team has won the Chairman's award, and they will be competing for it again next weekend at the FIT District Championship in Austin, TX.
