Five robotics teams from Hawaii public schools won awards in the 2012 VEX Robotics World Championship in Anaheim, Calif.,  over the weekend, where a Volunteer of the Year award also was presented to Hawaii participants.

Hawaii teams were not among the Tournament Championship Alliances, nevertheless, other awards were presented to the "Hawaiian Kids" (Team 359A) from Waialua; to Searider Robotics (Team 3685B) from Waianae; Kohala Middle School (Team 4119A) from Kapaau on Hawaii island; to Highlands Inter Robotics Teams 394 and 394B from Pearl City; and a Volunteer of the Year award was presented to Art Kimura and Renee Kimura from Hawaii.

About 10,000 participants in middle school, high school and college from nearly 20 countries gathered to compete in the weekend event.
