Team Registration Closing
Team registration is closing today. If you have not registered your team yet with FIRST, please do so ASAP. Email me if you are still registering a team. There are a few teams on my status report that have filled out the FIRSTWA registration or event registration and have not yet paid to register their team.
Event registration is now open! Here is the link to pick 3 event preferences- https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/7311fe4885dc4b5394ea8be1dd57594f
If you have multiple teams, you have to fill it out for each team. I will be deleting the ones that have more than one team listed on a single form.
If you have any questions, please reach out to me firstname.lastname@example.org
*Only 167 of 333 teams have filled out the Event registration survey!
FIRST Washington Registration- Only 169 teams of the 333 that have completed team registration have filled this out!
Our registration form (formerly the FIRST Washington Grant form) is open. Any team planning to compete with FIRST Washington is required to fill out our registration form. If you are interested in receiving a grant, you will need to complete the form prior to September 30. Here is the link to the registration form. https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/03a60a42b743445cbc5cef6c5a74a114
You will not receive an invoice to pay your FIRST Washington fees, or be placed in an event if you have not filled out this form. This is a mandatory registration for all teams.
Today, 9/30 is the last day to check the box for a FIRST Washington grant! if you have not filled this out and want a grant do it now!
Coaches Chat recording posted
the slides and recording will be posted today. Sorry for the delay!
The will be on our website here- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/resources/workshops-webinars/
Team Status Page
I have added a status page to the website here- https://firstwa.org/first-lego-league-challenge/teams/team-status-page/
You can check and see if you have registered your team with FIRST, filled out your FIRST Washington registration, or your event registration.
The team number sort comes out of FIRST’s system a little strange, so if you don’t find it right away, don’t panic!
Teams on top have paid FIRST, the are in a sort of numerical order, but for example if your team is 4700, it will not be towards the top, it will be with the other teams that start with 47.
If your team existed in the last 5 years, it should be on this list.
This is manually updated by me. I am one person, be patient 🙂
