Hi Friend,

Stop Build Day retirement: Check out the blog for Frank’s update on the retirement of Stop Build Day.

Although it’s not goodbye yet, we want to share the bittersweet announcement that FIRST® President Don Bossi will be retiring, likely at some point before June 30, 2020. Here’s his letter to our community.

Verified Volunteers is now Sterling Volunteers: Verified Volunteers recently completed a brand change and are now known as Sterling Volunteers. The product is the same - just a different look and name. Sterling is the parent company that developed Verified Volunteers in partnership with the Points of Light Foundation.

Is your team event-ready? The first round of event preference opens September 19, and now it’s a good time for lead mentors to log in to the Dashboard to check their FIRST® Robotics Competition team’s profile, and complete any outstanding tasks.

FIRST Alumni Spotlight: We caught up with FIRST Alum Andrew Stucker, to learn about his FIRST experience in our latest Alumni Update. Are you or someone you know a FIRST Alum? Share your story and you might be featured in a future Alumni Spotlight.

As always, we are here to help. Please contact our Customer Support Team with any questions.
