"It was pretty amazing [when we won], both teachers with us cried they were so happy, it was great," he said.
Technology teacher Mick Rogers said they were seeking community support to help fund the student's trip to the championships.
"It's pretty massive," he said.
"They have done exceedingly well.
"The excellence award is the highest award that can be handed out to any robotics team, it covers basically the whole robotics program, so it's a huge nod to Wodonga Middle Years. To get that high an honour on a national level is pretty incredible."
