In 2013, FIRST Team 1816 launched "be FIRST®", a peer-to-peer team movement aimed at putting the FIRST® ideals of Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition® at center stage. FIRST® is a different type of organization with a different kind of focus. It is one where “Coopertition®” is highly valued and Gracious Professionalism® more rewarding than winning at all costs. This is The Green Machine’s way of recognizing our fellow FRC teams for their ability to be innovative; for their outreach to communities, and for competing like crazy while assuring that other teams are able to do their very best, too. Part of this recognition includes a “be FIRST” banner that stays with each team, while “traveling trophies” have been passed along from team to team at each of the four Minnesota Regionals.
