In April of 2015, the FLL WORLD CLASSSM Global Innovation Award Semi-Finalist teams were inducted into the FIRST LEGO League Innovation Ambassadors in a special ceremony at World Festival in St. Louis, Missouri. Each member of the twenty semi-finalist teams, together with their coaches, stood and took the following pledge:
As an FIRST LEGO League Global Innovation Ambassador,
I do hereby promise
To do my best to continue my journey in innovation
And to share what I have learned with my community.
I pledge to continue to ask questions,
and keep my spark of innovation lit.
My journey does not end today.
It has just begun.
