The Research Presentation Award winner is the teams that excels in the areas of Research Quality, Innovative Solution and Creative Presentation. The Robot Design Award winner is the team that excels in not just Robust and Innovative Design but also in Robust and Innovative Programming.

An invitation to the FLL World Festival (International FLL Festival held in April in Atlanta during the FRC national championship tournament) goes to the Director's Award winner. If the first place Director's Award winner can not attend and the second place winner can not, then any team participating in the NCaFLL state tournament is allowed to apply to FIRST and a lottery will be held to determine the team that will represent Northern California. Note that there is a separate registration fee required and the attending team is responsible for all travel costs.
