FIRST FRC Team 4961 has accepted an offer to compete at the St. Louis Championship, April 26-29th, but we need help to get there. Registration, travel and lodging cost for our team will exceed $10,000.

FIRST teams from around the World build a robot in 6 weeks and compete in tournaments with the goal of going to this 4 day championship event. Please help the team achieve the goal that they have worked so hard to accomplish.

Team 4961, named Shock and Awe-Sum, joined the FIRST Robotics Competition in the 2014 season. The 35 student members of Team 4961 are Almont High School Students interested in STEM careers and the betterment of their futures. Not only do we build robots to compete in the tournaments, we also spread the ideals of FIRST throughout the school and community here in Almont, Michigan. We always focus on showing gracious professionalism and ensuring safety both at competitions and during build sessions.

Thank You For Your Support!!!!
