How do I sponsor a Competition?

In addition to the costs of running our team, we also host competitions for FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competitions.  And we’re always looking for sponsors of the events.  Your generosity will be recognized for supporting the FIRST program.

Being a sponsor allows you access to the intangibles of your organization’s’ community image and future workforce development.

We value all our sponsors to the highest degree!
