LAST CHANCE! FIRST LEGO League Team Support Applications MUST be in before MONDAY!

Greetings FIRST LEGO League Oregon,

If your team is unable to pay National Registration, for the Challenge Kit, for a robot kit (for teams without one only), or for the Oregon Qualifying Tournament Registration Fee please complete your Team Financial Support Application BEFORE 10 am on Monday, September 11. You have this weekend to finish the application through survey monkey. We want to get ALL of the available funds and coupon codes to be used for teams in Oregon! If your program has grown unexpectedly this week, PLEASE APPLY!  Remember each team may only have 10 team members and NO alternates! If 12 kids showed up to practice, you need two teams to fully support them! As long as we have funds and you demonstrate how you are reaching out to members of the community who do not self-select for robotics or may have a harder time joining a team and demonstrate what other fundraising you have done, your application will be considered.

Please remember if you receive a robot kit through ORTOP funds, you are making a TWO YEAR commitment to FIRST LEGO League!

Teams will still be able to use the sliding scale to pay for the tournament registration fee even if you do not submit a team financial support application!
