This year’s Grand Champion and First Place winning team is from North High School in North St. Paul, MN. They won with their robot “Final Cut.” Courtesy: National Robotics League (NRL)Fierce competition, metal crunching and sparks flying were the highlights as 51 student teams from 33 schools battled at the 2014 National Robotics League (NRL) Championships, held at the Lou Higgins Center at Baldwin Wallace University in Cleveland, Ohio. After two days of electrifying competition, "Final Cut" from North High School in North St. Paul, Minnesota, was crowned NRL Grand Champion. The competition was sponsored and created by the National Tooling & Machining Association (NTMA).

"Everyone who participated in the NRL Championships is a winner," said NRL Program Director Maureen Carruthers. "Students had a great time and were introduced to the world of 21st century manufacturing, and NTMA member companies formed valuable partnerships with community colleges and high schools. Manufacturing has many sophisticated, high-skilled jobs which go unfilled because of a lack of sufficiently trained candidates. NRL exposes thousands of students each year to the new world of manufacturing. We're helping to attract a new generation of technology leaders, one robot at a time."
