Cal Poly Rose Float receives 2019 Extraordinaire Award

The Cal Poly SLO and Cal Poly Pomona Rose Float teams are starting 2019 in an extraordinary fashion.

At the 2019 Rose Parade held New Year’s Day, the group received the Extraordinaire Award — which recognizes the most extraordinary float entered in the annual contest — for their entry “Far Out Frequencies.” Tuesday’s win is the first time the program has received the Extraordinaire Award in its 71 years of participation.

“We’re really excited about it,” said Sara Novell, a mechanical engineering senior who’s president of Cal Poly SLO Rose Float. “We did build an extraordinary float from an extraordinary team of students from both campuses. It was just a culmination of all of our collaborations, teamwork and honestly, I wouldn’t expect anything less from this team.”
