This year the Jenison Robotics Program located in Jenison, Michigan has had a record five high school & junior high school teams qualify for the World Championship in Dallas, Texas (Two high school teams and three junior high teams). These young men and women have worked countless hours, building, engineering, programming, driving, strategizing, documenting, and pouring into their robots and team to be some of the very best in the state, earning them a chance to compete on the World’s Vex Robotics Stage!
As with any global competition, a cost is associated. It will cost approximately $40,500 for registration, travel, uniforms, hotels, meals, and expenses to send these amazing young people to Dallas for a chance to fulfill their dreams. We are asking all of you to partner with us and support these remarkable individuals.
The competition is quickly approaching and is held the first week of May. Our teams will be perfecting their robots, practicing, re-engineering, and re-programming during this time. They will also be doing traditional fundraising at this time (pop can drives, burrito sales, local restaurant fundraisers, etc.) We hope to raise at least $20,000 (half of our goal) from this effort. Financial support for this event is strictly raised from fundraising efforts.
Thank you for considering supporting these amazing young men and women. Any donation made is tax-deductible.
