They said it is an honor to receive the award after only having a team for five years.

“We've never been recognized at an international level,” said Julia Pavon, a junior at L&N. “We've never been to national championships before, so to get this award is amazing, and I'm so proud and happy for our team."

The team uses Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and their own website to share information about their robotics.
