While Valentin Astie was putting in the final hours of practice with his team for the FIRST Tech Challenge World Robotics Championship, he received some good news. He was selected as a finalist for the FIRST Dean's List Award.

Astie, a junior at Park City High School, was one of three students in Utah named as a finalist and one of about 300 students in the world who were recognized. The finalists were invited to attend a banquet at the world championships in Houston last month, where 10 individuals were named as winners of the award. Astie was a finalist but not one of the 10 winners.
