Hello Friend,

The NASA FIRST® Robotics Competition Sponsorship Application is now open for U.S. Teams: Make sure to take advantage this opportunity for the 2018 season. The deadline to apply is Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 11:59 pm Pacific Time. More information is available here.
 
Event Preference Selection: We’re moving away from a first-come-first-served registration system to a preference system for 2018 events.
 
Some details on the new process can be found here: Preference System for Event Registration Blog Post.
 
An FAQ, which will be updated as necessary, can be found here: 2018 Event Registration FAQ.

Still have questions about the process? Contact us at firstroboticscompetition@firstinspires.org.
 
Is your team pre-registered for the 2018 season? Make sure that your team is ready for event preference selection by completing any outstanding tasks on your team’s profile. Login today and make sure two Lead Coach/Mentors are in place and screened.
 
The Youth Team Member Registration portion of the Dashboard will be available at the end of September. We will be sure to communicate the projected open date as soon as it is available.  
 
Need help with registration? Team Support will have extended phone support available until 7:00 pm Eastern Time on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through October 25, 2017 (regular business hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 am- 5:00 pm Eastern Time).
 
FIRST® Alumni Spotlight: We caught up with FIRST Alum Betsy Soukup, to learn about her FIRST experience in our latest Alumni Update. Are you or someone you know a FIRST Alum? Share your story and you may be featured in a future Alumni Spotlight.
 
FIRST Scholarship Opportunities: Looking for FIRST Scholarship Opportunities for college bound team members? Check out the search tips included in the latest blog entry in the FIRST Scholarship blog series "FIRST Scholarship Search."
