FIRST Washington Grant
The FIRST Washington grant is now open and we encourage teams who are participating in FIRST LEGO League to apply, https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/8e944e032ad74f98864853f98fa03a44. For teams/schools who have funds that need to be spent by end of this school year, you can send a PO to FIRST Washington, attn. Kyle Thomas, email@example.com to secure your 2019-2020 FIRST Washington registration fee.
As mentioned in an earlier communication to all programs, the FIRST Washington fee for FLL will see a modest increase this season. The fee for this season will be $350.00. This is in addition to your team registration fee you pay at firstinspires.org to register your team.
We are working closely with OSPI and encouraging them to open the iGrant as soon as possible. Watch your email for information on when this grant will open.
Team Registration is Now Open!
Registration for new and returning teams is open now! Registration closes when our region reaches capacity for the season, so register early! If capacity is available, registration will stay open until the end of September or early October (but is not guaranteed to be open that late).
Returning coaches can log into your account at: www.firstinpires.org. There you will have the opportunity to register your teams for another year. Please look at the notifications in the upper right corner and take care of the consent and release and required profile updates.
New coaches can start a team at this link: https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll/start-a-team
*A note on registration. They did add the option to opt out of the challenge set for those registering multiple teams that don’t need multiple sets, but there is no way to buy the challenge set at a later time. If you opt out you WILL NOT be able to go back and order one separately.
