I just posted the assignments for teams that have filled out their registration survey and paid their FIRST Washington invoice. There are also status check boxes to see if you are missing anything. Scroll in the assignment window if you cannot find your team number.
Assignments are posted here- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/
I will be adding links and event info to this page- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/challenges/remote-event-information/ tonight and tomorrow. There will be links to documents, a timeline for the event week, and other information. I will also go over this info on Thursdays coaches meeting, and answer other questions you have.
*Teams have not yet been added to the remote event hub. When you are added you will receive an email to create an account. All coaches and students must have a signed online consent form and coaches need to have passed Youth Protection Screening. I will not be able to add you to the system without both of these.
Invoices were emailed out on 2/17 to either your team admin’s email (if listed) or your main coach’s email address. If you are expecting an invoice and have not received one, check your spam/junk mail folder, often times we find they end up there.
If you did not receive an invoice, you can send an email with your team number in the subject line to email@example.com and Rob’n T can forward you a copy of your invoice. Note: Rob’n T is new and still learning the ropes. If you do not include your team number, she
will not try to track down who you are, she will forward the email to me and your invoice will not get re-sent until I have time to look into it.
- All teams registered with FIRST as of 2/8 were sent an invoice. If your team registered with FIRST but is not participating this season, please let me know and we will make a note of it.
PS Timing constraints made it difficult to create single invoices with multiple team information. For that I apologize. However, I have gathered the invoices in groups by their “purchaser”. Those of you responsible for multiple team payments, will have those invoices. Thank you in advance for understanding!
The first event will start on March 14th.To see the event schedule- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/challenges/event-schedule/
*Teams will be added to the Remote Event Hub for their individual events after teams are placed in events.
If you have not registered for an event, please do so asap.

Teams will be placed in events when they have registered with FIRST, filled out the event registration, and paid their FIRST Washington invoice. Teams will be placed by the end of February.
*If you have not paid or filled out your registration survey and plan to participate, please do so asap!
