We are The Power of Ten, a First Lego League team from Herkimer, NY.
We are students at the Herkimer Jr./Sr. High, and we have been competing together for the past few years We worked hard to create a project, build and program a robot, and compete in the local First Lego League City Shaper Championship held at SUNY Polytechnic Institute on January 18th. We did very well in all judged areas and won the Championship which earns us an invitation to compete alongside hundreds of other teams from over 70 countries in Detroit from April 29 - May 2, 2020! It would be the trip of a lifetime for all of us, and we are hoping to be able to make it happen, but we have to raise the funds for transportation, housing, and food. Our school is graciously helping us out with the entrance fee , but we have to raise the rest ourselves.
We've gotten some estimates for a charter bus and hotel rooms and it looks like we will need about $13,000 - $15,000. We plan to hold some fundraisers, but we won't have enough time to earn that much money. That is why we need your help. If we had more time, we could do more, but considering that the World Festival is in 3 short months, we will never be able to have enough bake sales or candy sales to meet our goal.
Please consider a donation for our team. Any amount is welcome and greatly appreciated. We would love to go and represent our community on such a large world stage. Thank you
