The Hall Fletcher Elementary (HFE) Family Team is raising money to send three HFE Robotics teams to the World Championships in Dallas, Texas, in May 2022!
***The Sutherland Foundation has announced a generous matching donation: All donations will be matched up to $5,000! And all donations are eligible for a free 2022 Go Local card! Contact the PTO ([email redacted]) to redeem your free card! ***
Our HFE Robotics Teams recently competed at the 2022 North Carolina VEX IQ State Championship. One of our teams won the Excellence Award, which is given to the top overall team in the tournament. That same team also won the Tournament Championship and Robot Skills Challenge. Another team was the Tournament Finalist, and the third team won the Build Award and finished 3rd in the Robot Skills Challenge.
These awards qualified them for the 2022 VEX Robotics World Championship, which will take place May 10th-12th in Dallas, Texas. Our three teams -- 11 students in total -- will compete with the best robotics teams from around the county and from the world!
As we plan and prepare for this trip, we are actively looking for sponsors to help get our students to Texas. Flights, hotels, food, event registration, uniforms, and equipment transportation are all costs factored into this trip. Any sponsorship is greatly appreciated, regardless of how large or small it may be. We will acknowledge all sponsorships on our website, social media, team uniforms, and/or on the robots themselves. Our projected costs are just over $1,000 per student.
