Tough specs for this thing. +/-0.2C resolution? Will be interesting...

Looks like this will be an official Division C event next year.

What microcontroller board is the best one to buy? I'm talking about functionality, how difficult to use, etc.

No right answer to that, but a basic Arduino is a decent place to start.

I would highly recommend the Arduino over others, mostly because the Arduino is beginner-friendly and has lots of resources. If you have experience with other microcontrollers, like Raspberry Pi, you could use that, but in my experience the Arduino is simple enough for this event.
