Hi Friend,

Program Updates, Deadlines & Reminders 

Event Surveys: After your team attends a FIRST® Robotics Competition event, we’ll send you a short survey to learn about your experience. The link to the survey is sent to teams the Monday after the event and remains open for one week. Team feedback is important as it is used to improve FIRST Robotics Competition. We thank you in advance for your participation!

FIRST® Impact Award Feedback: Teams that interview for the FIRST Impact Award at an event are provided feedback. Feedback is available 48 hours after the event has concluded until the end of the season. To view feedback, follow the instructions on the FIRST Impact Award Resources webpage.


FIRST Updates
