SALT LAKE CITY — Two Davis County teams placed in Saturday’s FIRST LEGO League State Championships at the University of Utah.

Tournament awards were given in the categories of Champions, Core Values, Robot, Project, Volunteer and Special Judges.

LEGO Trio of North Salt Lake, coached by Yuan Drollinger, and Centerville Cyborgs of Centerville, coached by Anish Bettwiese, both won in the Project Awards category.

Besides two other challenges, teams developed projects that explored the future of learning, working to redesign how we gather knowledge and skiills, according to a press release.

The overall championship honors went to team Jedi from South Jordan. In total, 297 teams of students between 9 and 14 years of age participated in this year’s competition, 27 of them from Davis County.

The program seeks to help students develop an interest in innovation and entrepreneurship. Utah’s participation in the worldwide competition is sponsored by the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute at the University of Utah, Utah STEM Action Center, Northrop Grumman and a number of individuals and foundations.
