FIRST Washington Invoices
I am hopeful that the FIRST Washington invoices should be going out this week. I will send an email as soon as they go out.
They will be sent to the teams that filled out the FIRST Washington registration form. If you have not filled this out, you will not receive an invoice.
Invoices will be sent to the team admin if one is listed, or the head coach.
Event registration has been open for a few weeks! Here is the link to pick 3 event preferences- https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/7311fe4885dc4b5394ea8be1dd57594f
2 of the events are not viable at this point and are in jeopardy of being cancelled. If you have not yet filled out your teams event registration please do it asap.
FIRST Washington Registration- If you have not filled this out you will not receive an invoice! This is required to participate in our events.
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. 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.

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 twice a week. I am one person, be patient 🙂
